Griffin, Rivers address ongoing investigation involving Clippers star

Blake Griffin is the subject of a Las Vegas Police Department investigation after a man filed a complaint stemming from a nightclub incident.

According to the Associated Press, Griffin and some of his Clippers teammates were at Tao, a nightclub at the Venetian, when a man started taking photos with his phone.

Griffin allegedly grabbed the phone and an altercation ensued. The Clippers were in Las Vegas on Saturday for a preseason game against the Denver Nuggets.

Clippers coach Doc Rivers addressed the situation before Wednesday's preseason Clippers game against the Phoenix Suns.


"I don't know enough about it," Rivers said. "It's an ongoing investigation, so I don't have a lot to say about it. I trust Blake 100 percent. Great kid. We'll figure it out and get through it.

"Basically, I can't say much, but I feel very confident that things will work out," Rivers said. "I'll put it that way."

Griffin was not available for comment before the game, but he did address the incident afterward. 

"I can't really (talk about it) right now," Griffin said. "But when the time is right, and I can, I will for sure. Right now, I can't really speak on it."
