Beer Thrown at Refs and on Dates at Last Night’s Clippers Game

Clippers fan throw beer

Apologies for the vague headline, but there was just too much beer being thrown during Game 6 of the Clippers-Thunder NBA Playoff series last night in Los Angelesto sum it up accurately in one headline.

The trouble apparently started when a girl with courtside seats got mad at her boyfriend and dumped her beer on him, as reported from this tweet from the game:

Then, less than 15 minutes later, the atmosphere turned, and people started throwing beers at referee Ed Malloy. That happened after a pair of fouls were called on Chris Paul and Blake Griffin that the crowd just didn’t approve of.

Here’s a couple more tweets from the same account showing how things went downhill from there:

Finally, somebody else was able to get a picture of the commotion, although unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be any pictures or video of the earlier altercation (that’s the one I would be most interested in, but maybe something will surface soon).

Here’s that tweet:

I know we’re all upset about not being able to see Rihanna at Clippers games anymore, guys, but there’s no reason to take it out on the refs.
