Video: Robin Lopez cheap shots Blake Griffin
Robin Lopez goes for Griffin’s head.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Playoff time is definitely here.
Robin Lopez was ejected after receiving a flagrant-2 foul for clobbering Blake Griffin in the 4th quarter of the Clippers and Suns game Thursday.
Clearly, the Suns came out with the idea to foul Griffin hard throughout the game. Blake spent most of the evening getting poked in the eye or slammed in the neck or head. It appeared throughout that the refs were not overly concerned with the overtly physical style of play as penalties were not severe.
It was only on this blatant foul by Lopez that anyone was really held accountable. Lopez made no play on the ball and simply tried to hit Griffin in the head. Hopefully the NBA will follow-up this flagrant foul with addition repercussions.
