The latest bit of verbal jousting came before the Clippers fell to the Warriors 110-106 on Tuesday night at Staples Center.

"That was pretty predictable; they didn't want to take the risk of going 2-2 [in the season series] with their regular guys," Rivers said. "You could pretty much predict they weren't going to play everybody." ESPN.com

He bought his tickets. He didn’t ask Klay for his tickets. He bought his tickets to take his kids to the Denver game for the first time for them to get to see Klay play in person. He gets there.
