Blake Griffin dumps water on Warriors fan after fouling out of Game 1 (VIDEO)

Blake Griffin was plagued by foul trouble in Game 1 of the Clippers’ playoff loss to the Warriors, playing just 19 minutes and fouling out on a tough call with 48 seconds remaining.

As he was watching the replay of his final foul on the sidelines, he appeared to raise his arms up in reaction to what he saw, which caused him to (inadvertently?) dump a cup of water on a Warriors fan behind him sitting courtside.

There’s no way this wasn’t intentional.

“I didn’t know what I did, but it wasn’t full,” Griffin said afterward. “I apologize. It was water.”

The more you watch the clip, the more it seems like a calculated move by Griffin to douse the man in the yellow t-shirt. He didn’t just forget the cup was in his hands, and the way the water spills out perfectly in the direction of the fan makes you wonder if something was said that triggered Griffin’s reaction.
