Griffin Suspended, Will Sit Out For Clippers’ Season Finale

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Blake Griffin has been suspended for a game after getting his 16th technical foul this season.

NBA president of operations Rod Thorn announced the suspension, and Griffin will sit out the regular-season finale on Wednesday night against Portland.

NBA rules state a player or coach is automatically suspended a game once he receives his 16th technical. For every two additional technicals, the player or coach will be automatically suspended for an additional game.

Griffin received the technical after swinging his right arm around trying to get the ball from Denver’s Timofey Mozgov and hitting him in the head with 3:23 left in the second quarter in Tuesday night’s win.

Regardless, Griffin planned to skip the last game to rest before the NBA playoffs.
