Video: Jason Smith flagrantly fouls Blake Griffin
The Hornets' Jason Smith pulled out a major cheap shot on Blake Griffin.
Jason Smith, you might be getting a call from Roger Goodell soon.
Oh that's right, Saints, not
After the play, Chris Paul and Randy Foye and essentially the rest of the Clippers went to confront Smith, but he walked away eventually raising his hands to the crowd. Griffin, luckily, wasn't injured on the play.
It was clearly dirty, and completely ridiculous. Really no good excuse for it. Griffin gets under players' skin with his physicality, but to straight up charge him like that? You've got to love how he put his hands up after as if it was incidental. Almost makes it worse.
Via Hornets.com, Smith apologized to Griffin after the game. "I didn't want to give him an easy layup (but) there are a ton better ways to go about it," he said.
You can be sure Smith is going to be getting a call from the commissioner's office though. He received a Flagrant 2 foul, which is an automatic ejection. And I'd expect him to serve a suspension for that one.
