Los Angeles Clippers Rumors
Chris Paul left Monday’s game against the Trail Blazers with a rib muscle strain and didn’t return. It was not immediately apparent how the injury occurred, but Paul was favoring his ribs and left the game early in the third quarter after posting 10 points, six assists and three rebounds in 24 minutes.
Although Griffin does complain a lot to officials, it’s almost understandable when one considers how much he gets hammered without a foul being called – especially any time he infiltrates the paint. Clippers coach Doc Rivers was at first funny when asked about this situation. “You trying to get me fined?” he asked the inquiring reporter. “I mean, what are you doing?” The reporter continued, asking if Griffin needs to handle officials better. “Oh, so it’s Blake’s fault,” Rivers said, still making light of it.
