Memphis forward Zach Randolph was ejected from the Grizzlies’ Game 6 NBA playoff battle against the Clippers by referee Joey Crawford.
“I was just talking to the bench and exchanging words and (official) Joey (Crawford) he don’t play so he tossed me,” Randolph said with a slight smile.
Not that it mattered. At that point, the game was in hand. After running the final score to 118-105, the Grizzlies had become only the 10th team to win four straight games after going down 0-2 to start a series. The Los Angeles Clippers, on the other hand, were headed home for good.
As for Randolph, the Oklahoma City Thunder will be seeing plenty of the big man in Round 2.
