Video: Del Negro talks after Game 4 loss

By Pedro Moura

LOS ANGELES -- Here's Los Angeles Clippers Vinny Del Negro's postgame press conference following his team's season-ending 102-99 loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday at the Staples Center.

Del Negro admitted he was emotional to finish his second season at the helm of the Clippers but used much of the press conference to look forward to upcoming offseason and 2012-2013 season. He addressed the team's most immediate needs, saying shooters were the most important thing they need to add to the table.

"We have to do a good job moving forward of putting certain types of players in front of Chris (Paul) and Blake (Griffin)," Del Negro said. "That is the next step. I think that will help ease some of the strain and some of the the things he had to do to carry us at times, especially in the fourth quarters."
