LOS ANGELES -- Here are video interviews with coach Vinny Del Negro and Blake Griffin and Chris Paul following the Los Angeles Clippers' 113-108 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday at the Staples Center.
Del Negro said he "didn't particularly like" the way his team played in the first half but thought the second half represented a big improvement.
Griffin, who took a while to emerge from the training room following the game, said he thought his huge dunks over Pau Gasol would help the Clippers' overall momentum but noted that they clearly didn't too much.
Paul said the loss to the Lakers hurts the Clippers because of the tiebreaker that was at stake. Still, he said, there's plenty of season left to make up ground.
