Blake Griffin was ejected from Thursday night's contest between the Clippers and the Bulls for catching Taj Gibson with a hard foul right across the face.

But there's no bad blood between the two players.

Griffin said afterward that it wasn't intentional, and Gibson wasn't at all upset by the excessive contact.
