Will Doc's pitch to Austin be difficult? "No. It will be easy. His will be the easiest. I’ll call his mom."

Arash Markazi

Doc on Austin: "He's young and clearly helped us, we all have to agree w/ that. I think he loved it here. He even liked the coach at times."

What's in store for DeAndre Jordan and the Clippers this summer? espn.go.com/blog/los-angel…

Arash Markazi

On May 10, the Clippers had a 3-1 series lead and were NBA title favorites according to NBA BPI and @numberFire. On May 17, they're done.

Gary Lee

I got to say, it was a good day. lakersnation.com http://t.co/dh1AcUmlx5

I'll have some free time during the offseason, so when PSN works, feel free to add me and we'll play some 2K or something: Duangdeezy (PS4).

Arash Markazi

I felt the Clippers and Rockets were playing for the right to lose to the Warriors in 5. I'm hoping it's closer but I'll stick to that pick.

Arash Markazi

Clippers exit interviews will be 10am on Monday. Quick turnaround, especially for the reporters who traveled to Houston.

Chris Paul after Game 7 loss: 'Being close ain't good enough' latimes.com/sports/clipper…

Ben Bolch

J.J. Redick: "You never want to equate sports with death, but it does feel like a wake or a funeral."

Ben Bolch

Chris Paul: "So close. I don’t even know what that means anymore. I don’t know. Like Ricky Bobby says, ‘If you’re not first, you’re last.’ "

Ben Bolch

Blake Griffin: "Myself included, we wanted it so bad that we didn’t make the plays we normally do."

Ben Bolch

J.J. Redick on Clippers taking the next step in the playoffs: "I don’t know if we were ready last year. We were ready this year."

Ben Bolch

J.J. Redick on Rockets: "They were absolutely relentless for 48 minutes and we were not."

Arash Markazi

The Clippers seemed almost reserved to the inevitable at the end of the last 3 postseasons. Players visibly and audibly stunned this time.

Ben Bolch

Matt Barnes on collapses: "It makes it real bad. We had an opportunity last year. We had a bigger opportunity this year. Couldn’t finish."

Arash Markazi

I keep thinking about this quote Matt Barnes gave me before Game 5 and how much things have changed since. twitter.com/ArashMarkazi/s…

Ben Bolch

Matt Barnes: "That’s been our problem, finish. I thought we had grown from out first series against San Antonio, but obviously we didn’t."

Ben Bolch

Said Matt Barnes, who lingered at his locker: "To be up 3-1 and to lose three straight, for some of us, time is running out so its tough."

Ramona Shelburne

Doc said postgame that he felt Rockets were ready to go in Game 5 if the Clippers applied the pressure. They didn't. Then hit a wall in G6

Arash Markazi

Doc's message to the Clippers after the game. http://t.co/9ZcFoVd1VX

Arash Markazi

Doc Rivers: "We can do something. We can improve this team. We will improve this team, but we’re not going to bring in another max guy."

Ramona Shelburne

In talking to Clipper players after this one, one word keeps coming up-- "exhaustion." Lack of depth played a bigger role than they let on

Arash Markazi

Doc Rivers on the 'Clippers Curse': "We’re going to break this. It’s my goal. It’s why I came here. I thought we had it."

Arash Markazi

Blake Griffin on the "Clipper Curse." http://t.co/pOj2OdF47W

Arash Markazi

Chris Paul: "I’m sorry but I don’t really see growth in a loss. It’s a long time until you get to the playoffs again."

Arash Markazi

Chris Paul: "It’s a long summer and it’s getting old to tell you the truth. I got to get better I’ll tell you that much. It starts with me."

Ben Bolch

Jamal Crawford: "Right now it feels like a blur. It feels like a bad dream."

Arash Markazi

Chris Paul: "So close. I don’t even know what that means anymore... Getting close ain’t good enough."

Beto Duran

Excellent work all season long on radio @bsieman @isaaclowenkron. Clippers fans get talented pros calling their games

Janis Carr

Redick on Rockets' play last three games: "They were absolutely relentless." Hmmmmm

Janis Carr

Redick: "You never want to equate sports with death, but it does feel like a wake or a funeral."

Ben Bolch

DeAndre Jordan: "We had a 3-1 lead and we lost three games in a row. That’s nobody else’s fault but ours."

Ben Bolch

DeAndre Jordan on his future: "I’ve been here for seven years, so this is what I’m used to. But I’m not thinking about that, man."

Janis Carr

Didnt take long to jump off the bandwagon twitter.com/MagicJohnson/s…

Ben Bolch

The Clippers made 32.9% of their three-pointer in the series, down from 37.6% in the regular season.

Melissa Rohlin

Jamal Crawford on whether roster needs to improve: "We were 1 game away from the Western Conference Finals."

Melissa Rohlin

Jamal Crawford: "You're angry, you're shocked. You're like, 'Did this really happen?' We have to regroup and go from there."

Melissa Rohlin

Griffin: "Game 6, you know, we stopped playing, took our foot off the pedal, and we got tight...We put ourselves in this situation."

Melissa Rohlin

Blake Griffin: "It's disappointing...We were close. But close doesn't really count. Almost doesn't count. We didn't put them away."

Ramona Shelburne

Dwight on the end of this game "they cut the lead and I was like, 'Man, we can't let them pull an us on us"

Melissa Rohlin

DJ: "This is what I'm used to (being a Clipper) but like I said, I'm not thinking about that right now."

Arash Markazi

DeAndre Jordan on keeping core together: "I've been here for 7 years. This is what I'm used to."

Melissa Rohlin

DJ: "We obviously let up in Game 6, but the past is the past, we can't do anything about it now...They had a hell of a three games."

Melissa Rohlin

DJ: "It was devastating. It's really disappointing...I can't put it into words right now."

Gary Lee

Up 3-1 and a 19-point lead in a closeout game, advancing to the Western Conference Finals is hard. twitter.com/Coach_Payne/st…

Crazy to think that a week ago, the Clippers were being favored to win the championship...

Melissa Rohlin

CP pointed out that James Harden made 15 free throws, nearly as many free throws as the Clippers attempted (17). He said that can't happen.

Melissa Rohlin

Chris Paul: "Every time we made a run, they hit a big shot."

Melissa Rohlin

Chris Paul: "Always want to keep us together."

Melissa Rohlin

Chris Paul: "It's a long summer. It's getting old too, to tell you the truth...I got to get better. It starts with me."

Melissa Rohlin

Chris Paul: "So close. I don't even know what that means anymore...Being close ain't good enough."

Beto Duran

Arash Markazi

Chris Paul: "Like Ricky Bobby said, 'If you're not first, you're last.'"

Melissa Rohlin

Doc Rivers: "We've been a low turnover team all year." (The Clippers had 18 turnovers in Game 7.)

Melissa Rohlin

Doc Rivers said he told the players that he's broken up right now, but he's already thinking about next year.

Ben Bolch

Doc Rivers said his top priority is keeping DeAndre Jordan.

Melissa Rohlin

Doc Rivers just said that he and the players will think about what happened in Game 6 "for a long time."

Melissa Rohlin

Doc Rivers: "I thought this series changed, personally, in Game 5."

Melissa Rohlin

Doc Rivers: "I love my team and I love the fact that they wanted to win so bad that I thought, in my opinion, we almost couldn't win."
