MMA meets NBA in Clippers-Grizzlies Game 6

MMA met the NBA Friday night during the Clippers’ season-ending 118-105 loss in Game 6 of their first-round series at Memphis.

With the Grizzlies up 74-59 after going on a 13-2 run in the third quarter, frustration hit a high when Blake Griffin and Zach Randolph locked arms and wrestled each other to the ground.

Randolph went on to press his arm against Griffin’s neck, prompting Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro and Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins to rush to the court to help cool the wrestling match.

Officials called a double foul — the duo’s fourth double-foul of the series — and Zach Randolph was issued a technical.

Grizzlies went on to win to eliminate the Clippers, but not before two ejections (Chris Paul and Randolph) and a total of seven technical fouls.
