Blake Griffin saw the comments and the NBA's reaction to Oklahoma City forward Serge Ibaka's low hit on him during Sunday's game. He didn't agree with either of them.

Giffin said he thought Ibaka should be been suspended for at least one game for hitting him in the groin area, but the league disagreed, slapping a $25,000 fine on top of the flagrant-1 foul that was upgraded to a flagrant-2 foul after a review of the play. Ibaka sent Griffin to the floor in pain with 1:52 left in the fourth quarter of a close game. The Thunder beat the Clippers, 108-104.

"From what I heard, I guess he's saying he was just trying to get his hand away from mine," Griffin said after Tuesday's practice. "I actually didn't have his hand. He had my arm, so I don't know how it's going to be interpreted. It is surprising, but it is a big game tonight (against the Lakers)."

The Lakers played the Thunder in a nationally televised game Tuesday.

"It's kind of a mess. It's kind of a tough situation," Griffin added. "Whatever the NBA wants to do and however they want to handle it, we'll let them handle it that way."

Although Griffin was unhappy with the league's reaction, he said he wasn't going to "cry and complain" or retaliate.

"I don't really see how it can be let go, but I'm not going to do anything about it," he said. "It's not really my job to start running around punching people and hitting people because it doesn't really solve anything. It really just gets myself in trouble, and I don't want that.

"When something like that happens, I feel it's best to let someone else take care of it because me going and punching somebody isn't really a part of the game."
