Analysis: Rod Thorn, the NBA's president of basketball operations, said: "After a league review of the Clippers-Warriors game, we have come to the conclusion that Blake Griffin should not have been ejected from the game. A common foul should have been called on Griffin for initially attempting to dislodge the Warriors' Andrew Bogut and a technical foul should have been assessed to Bogut for grabbing Griffin by the shirt and wrestling with him."

|Dec. 11 7:27 PM PT8:27 PM MT9:27 PM CT10:27 PM ET3:27 GMT11:27 8:27 PM MST10:27 PM EST7:27 UAE (+1)04:2722:27 ET9:27 PM CT1:27 - Griffin had 18 points and seven boards in a 96-88 road win over the Celtics on Wednesday.
Analysis: Griffin next faces Brooklyn's Brook Lopez on Thursday. He has had trouble against the muscular Nets big man in the past, averaging 14.8 points in four previous meetings and shying away from going hard to the basket. You may want to give him the fantasy night off.

Analysis: Though his double-double streak came to an end, Griffin was an efficient 10 of 17 from the field and remains one of the best assets to own in fantasy basketball.
