Hedo Turkoglu Rumors
Whether it was Doc Rivers, Chris Paul, Matt Barnes or DeAndre Jordan, the talk was about the officiating and how the Clippers felt like it was 5-on-8 at times. “It’s getting out of control, man,” Barnes said. “Some of the techs we got tonight were … I mean, we’ve got to do a better job of watching ourself, but I got a tech for saying, ‘He’s not shooting the ball.’ (Hedo Turkoglu) got a tech for saying, ‘That’s not a foul.’ I mean, this is just getting out of control, man. “They’re just whistle-happy.”
Clippers forward Hedo Turkoglu suffered a lower back contusion in the third quarter of Tuesday’s Game 5, 113-103 win over the Golden State Warriors and did not return. Turkoglu, 35, was defending David Lee in midair when he was knocked to the ground as Lee picked up an offensive foul with 7:47 left in the third quarter.
