Down by five with 11 seconds left in the Blazers/Clippers game on Monday night, Evan Turner and DeAndre Jordan were both ejected for some jawing and hand slapping after a Jordan foul on Lillard. Lillard hit the pair of free-throws and the Blazers scored seven points in the final 11 seconds but still came up one-point short of pulling off a victory.
The testy game also featured a flagrant foul by Chris Paul and a tech on Mason Plumlee for elbowing Blake Griffin.
“I’m sure there is no love lost,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. “We play each other a lot and whenever you play each other a lot it seems like you get testy. We don’t really care if you like us or not.”
If you haven’t realized it yet, Turner doesn’t take $#it from anybody.
