“I’ve always thought, and it’s crazy, I’ve said it before, if you argue that means you’re closer,” Rivers said. “When you don’t argue is when you have separation, and I’ve always thought that. “If there are issues on a team and no one is talking about it — but they know they’re there — then you’re not a very close team. The close teams are the teams that actually get in the arguments and fight and argue it out, because they’re comfortable enough with each other to do it.” Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin is expected to return to the team on Sunday or Tuesday, multiple sources told ESPN.com. Griffin went through a full workout in Los Angeles without any limitations Friday during the Clippers' 129-99 loss to the Mavericks in Dallas. The plan is for him to return Sunday against the Houston Rockets, but there is a chance the Clippers will want to see him go through a practice and a shootaround with the team first, pushing his return to Tuesday against the Hornets.

Rivers would say only that Griffin was "very close" to returning. So close, in fact, that there was an outside shot Griffin was going to fly to Dallas to play in Friday's game despite not traveling with the team on its two-game road trip to Oklahoma City and Dallas. "I think it's possible," Rivers said of Griffin playing Sunday. "I think every day, including today, was in play." ESPN.com
