Video: Mavs guard J.J. Berea topples Clippers forward Blake Griffin

DALLAS — Mavericks guard J.J. Barea got into a scuffle with Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin Thursday night in the Mavs’ 97-95 victory over LA.

Barea was fighting through a double screen set by Griffin and Clippers center DeAndre Jordan with 5:30 to go in the third quarter. Barea got frustrated and shoved Griffin in the throat, sending him to the floor.

The Mavericks guard was called for a flagrant-2 and ejected. Barea laughed at the ejection, and his fellow teammates and head coach Rick Carlisle though it was comical in postgame interviews.
