Back in December Blake Griffin confronted a Minnesota Timberwolves fan in the last seconds of a Pistons win.

A furious Griffin had to be restrained while the fan was ejected by arena security.

We now know what triggered Griffin’s outrage, per Pistons reporter Vince Ellis.

“Being called ‘boy’ is what triggered Blake Griffin’s confrontation with a Timberwolves fan earlier this season,” Ellis revealed on Twitter.

The new information comes after several fan-related incidents centred around Russell Westbrook and the Utah Jazz.

In the past few days the Jazz have banned two fans for life for taunts aimed at the OKC star.

The first fan was banned for telling Westbrook to “get down on your knees like you used to.”

The second was handed a life ban for calling Westbrook “boy” before a playoff game in 2018.

After the recent events, Ellis felt it necessary to share the Blake Griffin story.

It shows that racial taunts are more extensive than just a couple of remote incidents in Utah.
