Add Mark Jackson to the list of those who think some of Blake Griffin's skills fit perfectly in Hollywood.
The high-flying Clippers star was flagrantly fouled by Golden State's Festus Ezeli late in the third quarter on Wednesday night and fell hard onto the hardwood. Ezeli appeared to grab Griffin's arm as he drove through the lane. As Ezeli pulled on his arm, Griffin elevated, twisted in the air and landed on his right shoulder.
While it looked like a painful and awkward fall, the Warriors coach wasn't buying it.
"He's a great actor. I've seen those Kia commercials," Jackson said after Golden State's 115-94 win, via Antonio Gonzalez of the Associated Press.
The Warriors announcers weren't buying it either (of course they weren't) when watching the replay.
"We know that Blake Griffin has been known to flop a little... He just threw himself up in the air didn't he?" one of the broadcasters said.
This isn't the first time Griffin has been called an "actor." Following a game last season in which Griffin grabbed his eye after DeMarcus Cousins swiped at the ball and drew a foul -- even though it didn't look like Griffin was even touched -- the Kings' big man said the 2009 No. 1 overall draft pick is "in L.A where actors belong."
Earlier this season, another Golden State player took issue with Griffin's antics. David Lee went right up to Griffin after the Clippers star embellished some contact under the basket and yelled, "stop flopping!"
