During Monday night’s game between the Los Angeles Clippers and Memphis Grizzlies, Clippers’ all-world point guard Chris Paul was kicked in the head by Grizzlies’ swingman Tony Allen.

Allen was ejected.
These two squads are developing a pretty nice rivalry. They have met in the first round of the playoffs in each of the last two seasons with the Clippers winning the series during the 2012 postseason and the Grizzlies returning the favor during last year’s postseason.
However, this year the teams appear to be heading in different directions. The Clippers have gotten off to a 7-3 start, including a perfect 5-0 home record while the Grizzlies have struggled to a 5-5 start, although they have looked better as of late, winning each of their last two games.
Paul currently has five points, five rebounds and four assists, but the Grizzlies lead 32-24.
