Griffin was at Sotto Sotto and Coco Lezzone before fight

Blake Griffin broke his hand in Toronto on Saturday night after punching his team's assistant equipment manager Matias Testi outside a local restaurant. According to the Los Angeles Times, Testi downplayed the incident and told Toronto police he was ok. No report was filed.

Naturally, many Torontonians asked: which restaurant? According to ESPN, Griffin and Testi were fighting outside of Sotto Sotto on Avenue Road.

As TMZ notes, the two ordered a few rounds of drinks at the Italian eatery Coco Lezzone before making their way across the street.

Neither restaurant is commenting today but Sotto Sotto is a well known celeb hangout and popular with visiting athletes, Blue Jays players and Drake. A glance of their Twitter feed shows Marcus Stroman, The Weeknd and Mike Babcock have all dined there in the past couple of weeks.

As for Griffin, the LA Clippers' power forward will be out for anywhere between four and six weeks. He tweeted an apology today writing "a situation among friends escalated and I regret the way I handled myself toward someone I care about."
