1. Why isn’t
2. Redick and
4. Griffin could be back any day now. Rivers described his All-Star forward as "very close" to returning and left open the possibility of him joining the Clippers for their game in Dallas on Friday, but more realistic possibilities are the Clippers' games against Houston on Sunday or Charlotte on Tuesday. The Clippers have gone 9-5 since Griffin was sidelined last month after needing surgery to remove a staph infection from his right elbow. "We feel good with where we're at," Redick said. "It's hard to really gauge our team because we've had such inconsistencies and we've played very well for stretches, we've had bad stretches, we've lost games that are kind of head-scratchers, we've lost leads and now we're kind of doing that a little bit even without those guys and then you factor in how good the West is. I've said this all year: I believe in our team, I believe we have enough to get to where we all want to be and where we all talk about. I still feel that way."
