A comprehensive analysis of the Rockets and Clippers nearly scrapping

Police were called to diffuse the situation when Rockets players James Harden, Chris Paul, Trevor Ariza and Gerald Green stormed the Clippers locker room to confront Blake Griffin and Austin Rivers.

The NBA is investigating the incident of the Rockets players infiltrating the Clippers' locker room, according to the Los Angeles Times. None of these guys were actually going to fight.

Two minutes later, with Los Angeles ahead by 113-100, Houston's Trevor Ariza appeared to be making comments toward the Clippers' bench when Griffin approached and had some words for Ariza.

Rockets center Clint Capela walked down the main corridor and banged on the front entrance to the Clippers' locker room, league sources said.

Things got testy with 3 1/2 minutes to go.

Luke Walton, Lonzo Ball downplay latest LaVar Ball criticism
Walton was in good spirits, shooting around after the walk-through with Ball, Kyle Kuzma and assistant coach Brian Shaw. LaVar Ball has taken his "overbearing sports dad" shtick to another level. "People don't why they're in the game".

"I understand the game and all that stuff", the All-Star guard told reporters of the importance of Monday's game after the Rockets' practiced Sunday morning at UCLA. I think it's hard to play basketball when you never touch it and then someone slings it to you.

"They play hard, they play together, they all understand each others' strengths and we try not to talk about any of their weaknesses", Doc Rivers said. The 7-foot-1, 336-pound Shaq must have enjoyed the image of the 6-foot, 175-pound Paul leading his warriors (not Warriors) into a hold-me-back showdown.

An anonymous source from the LA Clippers' reported to us that after the team's win against the Houston Rockets that several Rockets' players rushed the Clips' locker room. Out with an ankle injury and wearing a suit, Rivers was reveling in Griffin's dominant performance of 29 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists.

Rockets head coach Mike D'Antoni was also incensed by the call and aimed some expletives in the direction of Blake, which also led to the ex-Clippers teammates jawing at one another.

Rockets: Harden (hamstring strain) is on track to return later this week. Someone opened door, saw him standing there - and shut it on him.
