The Los Angeles Clippers star player Blake Griffin on Monday, November 27th, suffered a horrifying knee injury during a National Basketball Association regular-season game against the Lakers.

The five-time NBA All-Star sustained the injury during the fourth quarter of the Clippers' thrilling 120-115 victory over the Lakers at Staples Center.

Griffin became tangled with Lakers guard Lonzo Ball and Clippers guard Austin Rivers beneath the Lakers' basket as the scrum dived for a loose ball with 4:43 remaining in regulation.

Sharpton: Meek Mill represents victims of the justice system
Speaking to his National Action Network group in NY on Saturday, Sharpton said a person's sentence must fit the violation. Mill's legal team has asked for his release and for the judge who sentenced him to be recused from the case.

This is an absolutely crushing blow for a Clippers team that is already dealing with a plethora of injuries this season.

The Clippers are still evaluating the severity of Griffin's injury, but if he misses a large portion of the season, they may look towards a rebuild as reaching the playoffs without him would be a tall task. They lost their starting point guard, Milos Teodosic, to a left foot injury during the third game of the season.

"The referees acknowledged he got hit", Williams said. Williams' point total was two shy of his career best for a single game.

Enhanced Odds: 33/1 on Watford or 7/1 on Man Utd
As a player if you win 10 in a row and you lose one, or you lose 10 in a row, you are still going to be angry when you lose. I just know we need to bounce back on Tuesday".

Williams had a dunk and DeAndre Jordan noticed. Griffin's only 82 game season came as a rookie, and he last featured in 80 games in a season in the 2013-2014. "There's another player out there now that's going to be taking some of those minutes".

"At the free-throw line, we shot 60-some percent", said Lakers forward Larry Nance Jr., who returned after missing the previous 11 games with a broken bone in his left hand. LaVar Ball and youngest Ball brother LaMelo sat next to the Clippers bench.

With the Clippers at 8-11 on the season, this is most definitely not good news. The Clippers won the first meeting at home, 102-84.

Memphis Grizzlies fire head coach David Fizdale
In a stunning move, the Memphis Grizzlies fired their coach David Fizdale on Monday, and no one can quite figure out why. This is their longest losing streak since a comparable eight-game skid in 2009, near the end of Gasol's rookie season.
