    Caron Butler blocked a Serge Ibaka shot into the head of NBA referee Derek Richardson, knocking the official to the ground, during a Tuesday night game between the Clippers and Thunder at the Staples Center. Caron Butler did his part, nearly forcing a turnover from Kevin Durant in the corner, and then sneaking in behind Serge Ibaka to land this swat block. Ibaka struggled to create a shot for himself on DeAndre Jordan, and Butler snuck in behind to swat the attempt towards the baseline, where Richardson was standing. With a little more than two minutes remaining in the second quarter and the Thunder leading 44-39, Butler played aggressive perimeter defense on Kevin Durant, forcing him to give up the ball to Ibaka with the shot clock winding down. Richardson had the look of a man who knew he was about to star in a decade’s worth of blooper videos. With first place in the West on the line, the Staples Center was as raucous as its been for a non-Lakers game in many, many, many years.
