Marcus Thompson: Mark Jackson said he didn't think Ezeli committed a flagrant on Blake: "He's a great actor. I've seen those Kia commercials." Twitter @gswscribe.

Like are you serious? If that wasn't a flagrant foul I don't know what is. How is grabbing someone's arm as they are taking off to the rim not a flagrant foul.

If anything Mark Jackson, David Lee and Jarret Jack are the actors. I mean Jackson calls himself a man of God and cheats on his wife. Lee thinks he's a tough guy. And Jack thinks cp3 didn't make him better.

blake checks his face for blood an average of 2 times per game. even when he gets hit in the gut.

He developed a reputation as a flopper last season but he's completely taken that part out of his game.

It's hard to fake a fall like the one he took last night to Ezili, and you can tell he was visibly shaken after the fall. I saw at least 2 pick and rolls where he should have rolled to the basket for an alley oop but he didn't even look to do it. He really turned into a bitch for the rest of the game after the fall.

but of course warriors fans are going to talk **** while they can. Deal with it. Until he starts truly going hard in the paint like he should, people will continue to call him a flopper. He has the ability to be a power player but he's trying to go the finesse rout at the moment to expand his game and stay healthy.

Well last night I felt they should have gone to DJ to post Lee up to exploit the mis match. idk why they wanted griffin to try post ezeli up. Anyways, when you run up the score and win by 21. Their is no reason to complain just move on. What is the point of calling players out when you're winning it's just childish, and im not referring to the fans im talking about the players.

Welcome aboard Boom! I think that Blake shouldn't let these negative comments affect him- and I'm pretty sure he won't. He just needs to keep playing his game and keep improving and he will be fine.

Ha at Marc Jackson having the balls to talk **** about someone just because his team is finally mediocre after being horrid last year. I hope they have an epic collapse (which they probably will) and miss the playoffs

Don't think that was a Flop at all.But like Ekker3 said he does check his nose a lot to see if he is bleeding and that kind of bothers me.Makes it seem like he is fragile.But he has gotten a lot better with hard fouls and flops.He doesn't overdue it anymore and he gets up right away.I get more annoyed at people saying he only dunks than the people saying he flops because honestly I have seen him flop more than a couple of times last year but he seems to have calmed that down.Mark Jackson is just trying to get under Blake skin because the Clippers and Warriors are in the same division and we see them 2 more times.Don't think Jackson is trying to really insult Blake just having some fun.

The Warriors announcers are the biggest morons! They actually called out Blake for saying he was faking his head hitting the floor. With Jackson's comments, Lee's previous comments, and now these morons, I hope we kill these guys on Saturday.

The truth goes both ways. Ezeli fouled him. Might have even gave him a flagrant. But Griffin exaggerated the foul and wanted to act like it was hostile. I think Blake was frustrated and that was his way of getting out his anger, just like when he shoved Biedrins.

Why do Clippers fans pretend like he doesn't flop a lot? It's blatantly obvious. If you were on the other teams side, you would agree on this.

No, the truth lies in this one incident. What that scrub did was out of frustration cause that was the only way he could stop BG. In that respect, the truth goes both ways.

BG has had more flagrants called on him than any player since he's been in the league. And while he USED to exaggerate the fouls he got in order to make sure the fouls were called, this play wasn't a flop.

And lets not pretend Curry doesn't flop either so "the truth goes both ways".

I can't believe Clippers fans actually think Griffin has taken flopping out of his game. He clearly flopped on this play. Yes he was going up for a dunk and yes he Ezeli grabbed him and it was a foul, but he clearly exaggerated it to an extent where it is flopping. You see this happen nightly and the players that are grabbed do not go down like this. I have a hard time believe Griffin has such little grace and balance.

Yes he hit his head, but he hit his head because of his exaggeration and flopping.

^ this coming from a wolves fan. klove flops more than griffin. and you have the master flopper on your team, jj barea. griffin was going for a dunk, and got his arm pulled when he was in the air. just cuz klove cant jump doesnt mean its ok for teams to cheapshot griffin when hes up in the air. if love was hit as often as blake is, he would be out from injury without a doubt, seeing how he hurts himself doing knuckle pushups hahahah

Way to stay on topic and deflect the issue on Love and Barea.

Yes they both flop, the difference between Love and Griffin is that Love doesn't act like he is murdered every time he is touched. Barea and Griffin have that in common.

"oh i got poked in the eye, so ill be out 2 games" lol. yet he thinks hes tough by stomping on scola's face. if you are tough to do that cheap shotting stuff, then you are tough enough not to miss any games from an eye poke. face it, griffin gets beaten down by every team and nothing is called most of the time. he needs to get beaten severely for the refs to actually call something. klove gets away with so much its not funny.

You guys need to calm down,90% or the NBA flops.I hate that is happens but it does.Lebron,Kobe,CP3,BG,KLove,Wade,Rubio,even Kevin Garnett have all been caught flopping.What's the point of arguing who does it more.The best players in the NBA flop but honestly I don't think Griffin did here.You can see Ezeli grab and hold Blake's arm while he was going up.And he fell right on his head,so were is the flop?

Damn seem hostile here. For both T-Wolves and Warriors fan here, maybe Griffin little bit exaggerated in this play, but how could he exaggerated in mid air. Tell me, when you go jump in the air and some dude grab your arm and pull you back, how would your body torque by the force? It would be something like Griffin spinning fall. It's outrageous how people claim its a flop. It's not like he was doing a ballerina in midair when someone give him a love tap. Other people are really blind by their hate.

Thanks David. Yea but he takes too many cheap shots on a nightly basis to not have this affect him. On a side note Griffin argues for calls, but he really doesn't flop. I don't think anything is wrong with that because if someone is fouling you, you got to let refs know.

Oh these clowns had a lot more comments in L.A. when they played the clippers. "Read David Lee's lips America he is telling Griffin to Stop Flopping." Last night they said Griffin gets all star treatment and gets calls to go his way. Basically saying the Nba is dirty I mean this guy should really get fined!

The guy is a fake. He thinks he is a badass priest or something. This is the same guy who asked a ref to give him a Technical foul. Who asks for a Tech!

And that's a great example why I explained my hatred towards the Warriors. They are a bunch of punks that act like they are Championship contenders because they finally have a decent record. We'll see what happens during Curry's annual ankle sprain and a bad 10 game stretch.

Well I just read most of the posts as I have been without power today and just got back online and here is my take,,,first, no that was not a flop and secondly, if any Warrier fans says that to me on Sat the minimum they are going to get is a real trash talk verbal beat down at best and at worst, I will be ejected for punching someone in the throat.

I finished reading more posts and I cannot believe any one that really watches the NBA has the big ass balls to say that was a flop. He gets yanked down by the arm and his head VISIBLY BOUNCES off the floor. He is sky high when he is pulled back and there is not one damn person reading this post wouldn't have done the same thing and probably stayed down and woken up in a hospital room with a concussion (which how he didn't get one is beyond me).

You arm chair trolls need to learn about Hi Def TV. Then you could actually see what is happening (even to your own teams).

PS: IF it were a flop, would he not have been fined?

how do you exaggerate a call when you get pulled down mid flight going full strength at the rim? he fell, hit his head. he wasn't crying about anything. he stayed down for a while, i'm sure it hurt like a b1tch. he honestly hasn't been flopping this year. he just hasn't been.

My gosh, it is like talking to an emotional 14 year old girl. When did I say that is why the Clippers have been winning?

And you aren't going to pay attention to this post? Really? Please, not that!

Fact is he still flops. Like I said, he was fouled, but look at Ezeli's effort to stop Griffin? He barely puts any force into it. Is he really that weak? Not trying to bash, but seriously. No reason someone should react like that. He has it in his mind that when he is fouled to do a circus act.

You need to take a class in physics. ever wonder how players can easily miss a layup or dunk by a slight push in the back? You probably don't. have you ever snagged a leash on a dog to see how easily they change direction? Probably haven't seen it happen.

Anyway, there doesn't need to be that much force to take someone out in mid-air like that when one part of the force isn't stationary. One player was planted on the floor with all his weight and the other had no balance and in the air.

Look at the video again and pay attention. he grabbed his arm and them pulled with force. He never let go until he made sure he hit the ground. Funny how a armchair professor like you can turn on a computer and act like he knows what he is talking about.

No worries, he may have been shaken up this game next game it's on.

If you think that was a flop you have never done any physical activity in your life or have no sense of how physics works. Not hard to stop someone mid-air. It was a blatant flagrant foul. Only a fool would think otherwise. BG hasn't committed many or frankly any blatant flops this season.

Do people expect Blake to control himself in the air? If it was honestly that easy wouldn't we see less injuries in skateboarding/BMXing?

p.s.

to: Wolvesguy9 you really expect clippers fan not to call you out when you come in here talkin smack from the start. You admitted the wolves flop more argument OVER!!! Shut up and go back to reading posts instead of posting. If you reply I will ignore. no point arguing with someone who's not even on MY PAGE...

i agree. i wish one of our guys takes out lee on saturday. that would be fun. seriously, i want to see lee laugh if he gets his nose broken by an "accidental" elbow. however my dream would be to see steph curry checked by blake near the warriors bench and having curry slam into mark jackson, knocking both of them out. hahaha. we will then see who is the actor.

Because he actually doesn't flop a lot. He flops occasionally, like every single other player in the NBA, but haters like you scream "FLOPPP FLOPPP" every time Griffin hits the floor simply due to jealousy.
