Los Angeles Clippers Rumors
“They were frustrated with us fouling DeAndre,” Malone said. “And, trust me, I’m not a fan of it. But it’s a rule you can use, and we felt that we had a better chance of fouling him than allowing them to take a shot. So we went to it. I think they were frustrated with that, some words were exchanged and that’s what happened.”
Andrew Bogut: Every time they made a big shot, we hit right back with one of our own. All of a sudden, they started to miss a few and we grabbed the lead. (The Clippers) are a big rival of ours, and to do that to them was absolutely sensational. Seeing how much it meant to us, and how much it meant to them to see the game taken away from them.
After DeAndre Jordan finished an alley-oop dunk and the Nuggets called a timeout, Clippers forward Blake Griffin and Denver head coach Michael Malone crossed paths and exchanged words. It’s unclear what was said, but it quickly escalated to the point that Malone yelled across the court at Griffin and had to be restrained by his players. Malone earned a technical foul. The score was 110-93 for the Clippers at that point, by the way.
