Griffin seemed to undercut Monk while he was in the air

NBA: Charlotte Hornets at Detroit Pistons Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

Blake Griffin was ejected after a flagrant-2 foul on Malik Monk on Sunday in Detroit’s 113-103 loss.

Griffin had struggled all night and felt he had enough and committed a dumb, dangerous foul on a defenseless Monk while he was in the air.

According to the Fox Sports Detroit broadcast, Blake then told the refs the foul was their fault — as he took his frustrations out and intentionally committed the infraction.

Like I said, dumb.

Luckily, Monk was not hurt and Griffin will likely find his wallet a little lighter but not suspended.

Griffin ended the night with 10 points on 4-of-16 shooting, missed all five 3-point attempts and had just three free throws. He added five assists and six rebounds. It was a terrible night for Blake and he decided to make it even worse.
