- [Note by Steve Perrin, 01/13/11 10:32 AM PST ] The incident between Blake Griffin and Mario Chalmers was a bit of a mystery to viewers of the local LA broadcast. But the Miami broadcast got the camera angle that showed the start of it. It's been discussed here on Clips Nation that Blake was protecting Baron after a hard foul (Blake implied as much in his post game interview with Dain Blanton). Nope. Fanhouse has a post up showing the other angle - Blake gave Chalmers a gratuitous shove as they were running down the court trailing the fast break. Was it a dirty play? Well, it wasn't a clean play; but nor was it any big deal, and clearly Chalmers completely overreacted to it. Chalmers must also have had some really well-chosen words for Griffin, because whatever he said, he really got a rise. I've never seen Griffin react quite like that. Whatever Chalmers said, it brought an immediate T from the official who heard it, and then Griffin, who had seemed relatively composed until then, looked ready to actually charge the guy, bringing his own T. One wonders if these two have some history from Kansas-Oklahoma.
