There was bad blood between the Clippers and the Mavericks tonight, and it lead to an ejection.
While trying to set up a screen with Chris Paul driving, Dallas's J.J. Barea didn't care for how physical the interaction was, and ended up knocking Blake Griffin to the ground.
Yes, Barea took down Griffin.
From the look of the video, it's clear he raises his arm and throws a shot towards Griffin's grill.
It was ruled a flagrant two and Barea hit the showers early.

Barea wound up with just five points on the night.
