The Clippers have taken an average of 14.3 more shots than their opponents while being outrebounded by an average of 9.3 per game. Against Utah, the Clippers were outrebounded, 43-35, but they took 81 shot attempts while the Jazz had 77. "Visually, I saw [that it looked] pretty good," Rivers said of the team's rebounding effort -- which really was a team effort. Chris Paul finished with a triple-double in that game, -- 13 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds. "A 6-foot guard getting a triple-double, it's really impressive, it really is," Rivers said. "You would think he would get his with steals, not rebounds." Los Angeles Times

“I like him,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said before Monday’s 107-101 win over Ingles and his new team. “We were definitely trying to find ways to keep him. I think he’s going to be a good player.” The problem for Ingles was that the Clippers had an overfull roster and had to make a hard decision before final rosters were due to the NBA office with between 13-15 players. Rivers believes the Australian small forward “would’ve found his way on the floor with us” if L.A. could’ve held on to the 27-year-old. “I just think a guy that knows how to play when you put him on a good team, he can be really good,” Rivers continued. “And he’s a great guy that you want on your team.” Deseret News

As is always the case when the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Clippers prepare to face off tonight, that tired, overused, overly-simplistic word that doesn't truly define what they have going here was dragged out yet again. Rivalry. "It's not a rivalry," Warriors small forward Andre Iguodala said with a grin as he clocked out Tuesday afternoon at the team's practice facility. "Neither one of these teams has done anything." USA Today Sports

Warriors center Andrew Bogut, the 29-year-old Australian who missed the entire playoff series against the Clippers with a rib injury, is looking forward to re-entering this not-so-friendly fray. "It's not that I enjoy it," Bogut said when asked if he relishes the no-love-lost dynamic of this matchup. "If (physicality) happens, it happens. Some games, it happens and I'm happy to battle and wrestle and scrap and claw and fight and do whatever you have to do. And some games it doesn't happen. "I'm one of the few guys that doesn't have a boatload of friends that I party with in the summer in Vegas that are in the NBA. I kind of go and do my own thing, so I'm not one of those guys that's schmoozing guys before the game or at halftime. So I don't really care once they think of me once the game is over."

Rivers on Monday was queried as to whether he believes his players are being too demonstrative on the court with the referees. There was no diplomacy in his response. “Probably, yeah,” he said ahead of his team’s game against the Utah Jazz at Staples Center. “Well, (Sunday), I think as a team we were, for sure. We’ve got to get to playing. You know, I’ll do all the antics if they need me to do them. “But I just think the players have to play. I just find it very difficult to play and ref. I think that’s really hard to do. I think we’ve gotta pick one or the other.” Los Angeles Daily News

Jody Genessy: Clips coach Doc Rivers said LA wanted to re-sign Joe Ingles after waiving him. They were bummed Utah got him. "We took the gamble and lost." Twitter @DJJazzyJody

Jovan Buha: But he admitted that there indeed was some miscommunication with him and Doc on his level of interest in re-signing. I'm just guessing here, but it seemed like Collison was implying he wanted to re-sign with Clips for full MLE, but they weren't interested. Twitter @jovanbuha
