Bad blood between Rockets, Clippers carries over after game

Houston Rockets Players Try to Enter Clippers Locker Room to Confront Austin Rivers Blake Griffin After Game

Call it the clash between Khloe Kardashian's ex andKendall Jenner's current, as things reportedly got scary between the Houston Rockets and LA Clippers following their January 15 game.

According to ESPN.com's Adrian Wojnarowski, James Harden, Chris Paul, Trevor Ariza and Gerald Green found their way into the Clippers' locker room in search of Austin Rivers and Blake Griffin.

They came to Staples Center to cheer the Los Angeles Clippers and alternately cheer and boo Chris Paul in his first game against his former team since forcing a trade to the Houston Rockets last June. It was the point of no return for the Rockets, with Griffin being the go-to guy for the Clippers. Apparently, nothing physical happened.

Blake even upset the Rockets' coach, Mike D'Antoni, 66. Williams torched the Golden State Warriors for 50 points in a victory Wednesday and leads the Clippers with 23.1 a game.

Griffin and D'Antoni were each assessed with a technical foul but tensions continued to run high for the remainder of the clash and afterward.

"I don't know", Paul said.

However, security in the Staples Center blocked the players before any confrontation could take place.

Dortmund draw a blank without dropped Aubameyang
And German publication Bild claim Aubameyang has put in a transfer request to push through a move away from the Bundesliga outfit. Arsenal are reportedly preparing a cash plus player offer for Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

2 Griffin grabbed the rebound, passed to Lou Williams and rushed up the floor.

"He asked me if I was still coming to his birthday party, and I said 'yeah, I'm gonna try.' So yeah, we have a different relationship", Griffin said.

The truth is nearly all National Basketball Association players are too smart, and paid way too much money, to risk their livelihoods by getting into real fights with opponents.

Most of the focus of the Rockets anger seems to be directed at Rivers, who did not play because of ankle injury. Despite five-straight 5o-plus win seasons, the Clippers never advanced past the second round of the postseason.

"Sometimes I think sports are dumb, but times like these remind me why they will always be the best".

He had 12 points against the Rockets.

What's Next? - The Clippers play the Denver Nuggets Wednesday at 7:30 PST.
