Clippers promise no letdown tonight in Game 2 of their playoff series against Thunder

The Clippers, who won Game 1 of the second-round playoff series against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday night, say they want more.

L.A. is happy to have taken the home-court advantage away from Oklahoma City in the best-of-seven Western Conference series, but the Clippers aren’t satisfied.

And they promise there will be no letdown, because a Game 2 win Wednesday night at Chesapeake Energy Arena would put even more pressure on the Thunder.

“I think we just have to have that mind-set of coming out physical and being prepared,” Blake Griffin said at the Clippers’ shoot-around Wednesday morning.

“They’re going to make a run. They’re going to hit shots. They are playing at home. The crowd is going to be in to it. So, you just kind of have to be prepared for those things and withstand any runs, withstand any energy. We have to do what’s working for you."
