The Clippers Had a Fight So Loud People Could Hear It in the Media Room - 'The Herd'

After the Clippers pulled off a 105-103 win over the Detroit Pistons, J.J. Redick was asked to do a postgame interview with a local news station.

Redick poured in 24 points on 10-17 shooting and presumably would want to talk about his big game.

Instead, as the interview began, Redick was frantically surveying the court while giving something of a cliché athlete answer.

"Great win for us," Redick said while looking around. "I just think we showed a lot of resolve."

Then, without warning, Redick sprinted away toward locker room, leaving the newscaster hanging, confused. Here's the video:



It was a puzzling interview, but according to NBA TV's Matt Winer, there was an understandable, hilarious reason for Redick's quick exit:



Redick retweeted the interview from his Twitter account, but never confirmed or denied the report.

There's no word if Redick did have to dance, but we appreciate the hustle.
