It’s not hard to figure out how Detroit Pistons big man Blake Griffin felt about the officiating during Monday’s series-clinching win for the Milwaukee Bucks. During the contest, Griffin was caught on camera joining fans in a “ref, you suck” chant.
The moment in question came with under two minutes to go in the second quarter. Griffin was called for a foul, sending Sterling Brown to the free-throw line. As television cameras focused on Griffin, he could be seen mouthing “ref, you suck” along with the fans.
It’s unclear whether Griffin will face punishment from the league after being caught participating in the chant. The NBA is usually quick to act on criticism of the officials.
The league fined and suspended Brooklyn Nets general manager Sean Marks for confronting refs following the team’s Game 4 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers. Joseph Tsai, part-owner of the Nets, was also fined for commenting on the refs.
Griffin may have had a reason for his frustration. At the end of the third quarter, the Pistons had 27 fouls compared to Milwaukee’s 12.
