TEMPERS FLARED LATE on as the LA Clippers beat the Houston Rockets 113-102 in the early hours of this morning, and the bad blood almost spilled over into the dressing rooms after the game finished.

Griffin, who was involved in multiple flashpoints during the game, later played down the incident in the fourth quarter which led to his ejection with Ariza.

Not because the Clippers won't want to deal with Houston, but because the Rockets have thrived this season with Capela manning the center position. The Clippers took advantage, rolling to a 128-118 victory that night, shifting gears from a team dependent on defense to a highly-efficient scoring squad.

A game and a half is all that separates LA from moving even further up in the standings to fifth, where the Thunder currently sit with the Pelicans in-between them as of right now.

But the Clippers aren't necessarily complaining. The officials quickly ejected both players before the game could get out of hand.

L.A. also received Lou Williams, with the sixth-man-of-the-year candidate a major contributor on offense.

"We believe that we can be really good", coach Doc Rivers said, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The veteran exchanged words with Blake Griffin on several occasions during a chippy affair and Houston Rockets players also got in on the act as they looked to back up their teammate. And former co-star Blake Griffin was a major catalyst.

If you woke up and saw injured Clippers point guard Austin Rivers trending, here's why. "I think it's ice headed to Houston". After their win over the Rockets, the current winning streak for LA jumped to five games, showing them in seventh place overall.

Rockets general manager Daryl Morey made a decision to hit the Clippers on the way out. As Cleveland.com's Terry Pluto noted in a recent article, the Clippers "would strongly consider" trading Jordan if that Brooklyn pick was part of the package they were getting back.

Griffin and D'Antoni were each assessed with a technical foul but tensions continued to run high for the remainder of the clash and afterward. "It's about us and doing what we came out here to do".

Jordan sat out Saturday because of a sprained ankle, the first time in his 10-season career he's been sidelined by an injury. By then, he would have missed three straight games.
