Watch: Clippers fan won't give ball to Blake Griffin as clock ticks

Blake Griffin was annoyed.

And justifiably so.

The Clippers were letting the lowly Milwaukee Bucks hang in there a little too long on Monday night but were just four-tenths of a second from being able to regroup at halftime.

Well, it would have been just four-tenths of a second if a clueless fan sitting courtside would have just given Griffin the darn ball after it bounced to her just before the buzzer.

Instead, she held on to it while fiddling with her phone and snapping a shot of the Clippers star standing over top of her.

He even appealed to the official before the young woman, apparently satisfied with her portrait of an angry basketball player, released the ball, finally allowing Griffin to throw his meaningless inbound pass to end the half.

Luckily the incident seemed to have no effect on Griffin or the Clippers. He finished with 27 points and 14 rebounds, and the team got its 50th win of the season, 106-98.
