The Clippers' on-court chirping, a steady source of headaches for the Warriors and Kings in recent years, has been called out on a national scale.
During Thursday's broadcast of the Clippers-Suns game on TNT, color commentator Reggie Miller chided Los Angeles' players for constantly being in the referees' ears.
“Understand the source this is coming from, which is me: The Clippers complain on just about every call in a 48-minute game."
Blake Griffin was ejected in the second quarter of the game after picking up a second technical foul arguing a no-call. Griffin is currently tied for the NBA lead in technicals with four, while the Clippers as a team have a league-high nine T's.
Clippers head coach Doc Rivers immediately voiced his frustration following Griffin's early exit, saying: "That's terrible. Nobody came to see you, ref."
In a halftime interview, Rivers added: "What pisses me off is that coaches get T's for losing their composure but nothing happens when officials do."
The Clippers will meet the Warriors Nov. 19 at Staples Center, while their next matchup with the Kings comes on Jan. 16.
