"I tell Blake every single night that he's the guy on the court," said Clippers guard Jamal Crawford, who joined the Clippers in the third of Griffin's five seasons. "No matter who's on the court, he's the guy. He has grown into that, and obviously you can see his maturity. When bad plays happen, when good plays happen, he stays focused. He's leaving it all on the court. USA Today Sports

“We’re probably one of the most hated teams in the league but that drives us,” Matt Barnes said Thursday night as he sat in front of his locker. “It fuels us to know that 46 out of 47 people picked us to lose. That’s the kind of fire we need to just reassure us that that there’s no time to be comfortable. This team has got what it takes to win a championship and we just have to go prove it now.” ESPN.com

Doc Rivers said there were many reasons the Los Angeles Clippers lost to the San Antonio Spurs 111-107 on Tuesday to fall behind 3-2 in the first-round series, but he said some of the "brutal calls" by officials were a factor. "I don't complain much," Rivers said. "I thought we got some really tough calls tonight, some brutal calls. The travel on Blake [Griffin], the goaltend on Matt [Barnes], which wasn't a goaltend. You think about the playoffs, and they're single-possession games. Those possessions, those were crucial. J.J. [Redick] 's foul that got him out, J.J. didn't touch anyone. It's not why we lost, but those were big plays for us." ESPN.com

Another potential prize summer target for the Mavs: Clippers center DeAndre Jordan, who multiple sources say has made it clear through back channels that he will be extremely interested in coming to Dallas. Signing the 26-year-old Jordan, a dominant physical force who led the league in rebounding and field-goal percentage this season, would mean letting the 32-year-old Chandler leave again after another one-season stint with the Mavs. ESPN.com

Jordan had gone to the basket, looking for either the alley-oop or chance for an offensive rebound. But instead, he tipped in the ball while it was clearly still over the cylinder, voiding the bucket. The mistake cleared the path for the Spurs to get the win and take a 3-2 series lead. “I was just trying to make a play on the ball, but it ended up being a dumb play,” said Jordan, who admitted touching the ball. Even Clipper coach Doc Rivers said he thought it was the right call. NBCSports.com


Modern-day Clippers like Blake Griffin and Chris Paul are among the all-time best players in franchise history.
