Not that it's easy for the elder sibling to watch. Taylor Griffin admitted that seeing his brother sustain blow after blow "gets my blood pumping a little bit." Blake also gets going in a way that entails the most productive kind of revenge. "I notice that every time that happens, he comes back harder, more aggressive, and he attacks the rim harder each time," Taylor Griffin said. "It normally proves too bad for the other team."

Oklahoma City Thunder forward Serge Ibaka will not be fined or suspended for hitting Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin in the groin, a league source told Yahoo Sports. Ibaka hit Griffin in the groin with his fist early in the Thunder's 101-99 loss to the Clippers in Game 4 of a second-round series on Sunday. Ibaka said the incident was an accident because he was pushed from behind by Thunder teammate Kendrick Perkins. Yahoo! Sports

"There's not a team that has gone through this," Blake Griffin said. "I remember Saturday morning, when everything had hit, you could see certain players that were really emotionally about the situation. This was the first day, and it got bigger. At the point when we had the meeting, it was a huge thing, but it just grew and grew and grew with each day and each hour, honestly, and it just wore on guys. We tried to put it off to the side, but it's impossible." ESPN.com

Major companies such as State Farm Insurance, Kia Motors America, Virgin America, Red Bull, CarMax, Amtrak, Yokohama Tires and Corona, have in rapid succession, either suspended or ended their sponsorship deals with the Clippers. Businesses do not want to continue their relationships with the team owned by Sterling, at least until Silver takes decisive action. Many of these companies also have sponsorship deals with individual Clippers players. Most notably is State Farm, which will continue to run advertisements with star point guard Chris Paul. The insurance company will still utilize the brands of Paul and the NBA, and only disassociate itself from the Clippers franchise. This strategy, which also could pertain to Red Bull and Kia, if either company continues to use Clippers forward Blake Griffin for its commercials, may place the league in a delicate position.

Contrary to Paul and Blake Griffin, Clippers Glen Davis and Redick acknowledged they were distracted over the Sterling situation. "There was a lot going on today," Redick said. "Unfortunately besides all the peripheral stuff, we played a team that played a great basketball game." Said Davis: "You're going to think about it. It's on your brain. It's on your mind. You can feel it. But you got to move past it and move forward." Yahoo! Sports
