It only took over a week but the league office is finally getting around to reviewing the non-call on Blake Griffin’s shove of Darius Morris. During the first installment of this season’s Battle of Los Angeles BG took offense to Morris continuing play after the whistle was blown. The All-Star forward gave Morris a very impolite shove to show his frustrations.
When the refs failed to blow the whistle for Griffin’s strong reaction to the extended play of Morris, Mike Brown flipped his wig. Brown’s reaction, unlike Griffin’s, didn’t go unnoticed by the officials. Brown was hit with a T while Griffin was able to walk away with getting as much as a hard look.
Brown says the league informed him a technical should have been assessed. As for why Morris didn’t get the call…just chalk that up to his virgin status in the NBA.
“The league said Blake should’ve gotten at least a technical for pushing him. The officials are human, but they overreacted and gave the Clippers a point there. It was officials looking at Darius and thinking, ‘He’s a rookie’.”
