Simply put, Joe Ingles isn’t fun to play against.

He’s a (bleep) and has a way of getting under your skin, according to one player.

He grabs you, pesters you and loves to annoyingly straddle the line between what’s a foul and what’s not a foul while guarding you, another player admitted.

And he loves to talk smack, as every player (or reporter) will tell you.

“It just kind of happens,” Ingles said.

By the way, it’s highly likely that the Los Angeles Clippers will agree with the aforementioned descriptions of Ingles and his behavior that the Australian wing’s Utah Jazz teammates made about him.

Ingles' matchup against Clippers guard JJ Redick will be one of the key aspects to Game 2 of this first-round playoff series, which resumes Tuesday night (8:30 p.m. MDT) at Staples Center, with the Jazz up 1-0.

Doc Rivers, for one, is just bummed that Ingles is a key player for the other playoff team in this first-round series. Of course, it wouldn’t have been that way had the Clippers kept Ingles instead of shooting guard Jared Cunningham, who’s no longer in the league, just before the 2014-15 season tipped off.

Rivers, the Clippers’ GM and head coach, still regrets that transaction.
