I promise you: Blake Griffin is an all-star caliber player. Having seen him play so many other games, I hope you can take my word for it. But on this night against the Wizards, Griffin reverted back into the annoying flopper/banger type of game that he has exhibited so often. The above gif, via Truth About It, was the most egregious example, but he also induced a lot of questionable foul calls on Trevor Booker in the fourth quarter.
As noted by SBN's Orlando Magic blogger Evan Dunlap, the league has not warned anyone for flopping since December 29. This probably merits that streak being broken.
