Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Griffin was ejected from Thursday's game against the Bulls following a hard foul against Chicago's Taj Gibson.

Griffin knocked him to the floor with a shot to face as Gibson went up for a shot inside with 5:59 left in the third quarter and was called for a foul.

Officials reviewed the play and gave him flagrant foul 2, which carries an automatic ejection. Griffin had 18 points.
