Robin Lopez slaps Chris Paul, gets ejected

Things got chippy in the third quarter of Friday night’s Clippers-Knicks game, and Robin Lopez and Chris Paul were in the middle of it.

It happened when the two veterans were battling for a rebound that Lopez could not haul in, and a clearly-frustrated Paul shoved Lopez. The Knicks big man did not like it, so he slapped CP3 in retaliation.

Paul and DeAndre Jordan were each hit with technical fouls, while Lopez earned two, and was ejected for his role in the skirmish.
