Testy moments for Clippers

Coach Doc Rivers was asked if the Clippers were the type of the team that could get under the skin of the other team on the court.
“:I noticed that last year. We probably talk,” Rivers said, “I don’t know what the hell’s going on out there. I really don’t.
“We’ve just got to keep playing. I hate when we get distracted by it. I think we’re getting better but that’s an area we still have to improve in. We’re getting better also at leaving the officials alone and playing. We still have to get better there.”
As if to prove that point, less than two minutes into the second quarter DeAndre Jordan picked up his third foul. And a technical foul.
Less than five minutes later, Rivers picked up a technical of his own.
And at the end of the first half, the Clippers were less than thrilled that it was ruled that Kevin Love was fouled by Blake Griffin while trying to beat the buzzer with a long shot. Griffin got his third foul and Love made all three free throws.
