Things got heated on Christmas between the Warriors and Clippers, which resulted in a player from each side being ejected.

For the Warriors, it was Draymond Green for a high elbow to Blake Griffin. For the Clippers though it was Griffin, who already on a technical because of Green's elbow, picked up another when Andrew Bogut grabbed his jersey.

Griffin, clearly frustrated about being ejected in what resulted in a tight loss, didn't like the move by the Warriors.

"If you look at it, I didn't do anything, and I got thrown out of the game," Griffin told reporters, via ESPN LA. "It all boils down to they (the referees) fell for it. To me, that's cowardly. That's cowardly basketball."

The Warriors won 105-103, but Griffin essentially missed the entire fourth quarter.

Kind of the interesting catch to the situation was that upon being ejected, Green was very unhappy, claiming Griffin did something first to earn his elbow. So the Warriors may have felt slighted there and took it upon themselves to find justice for Griffin not being ejected then. Just a theory.

"Instead of just playing straight up and playing a game, it got into something more than that, and it's unfortunate because you want to play a team head-to-head," Griffin said. "You don't want to start playing other games and playing cowardly basketball."
