LOS ANGELES -- Here is video of Blake Griffin and Chris Paul's postgame press conference following their season-ending 102-99 loss to the San Antonio Spurs in Sunday's Gane 4 at the Staples Center.
Paul spoke first and refused to claim any sort of moral victories in getting to the second round of the playoffs in his first season with the Los Angeles Clippers. He also said he "no question" feels confident in the Clippers' fortunes going forward.
"I think it's great that our team got a little taste of the playoffs," Paul said. "I think coming into camp next year we're gonna expect a lot more."
Griffin, sporting a bandage on his stitched upper lip, said similar things. Sure, the Clippers got swept by a Spurs team that hasn't lost in more than five weeks, but they still got swept, he said.
"They played extremely well, but that doesn't make us feel any better," he said. "There's nothing about that that you can feel good about."
