PLAYA VISTA, Calif. For a team that has never won a NBA championship but shares an arena with a team that has won many, a division title is no small thing.
The Clippers appreciate the importance of winning the franchises first Pacific Division crown, an achievement they didnt attain in 27 previous seasons in Los Angeles or in six seasons in San Diego or eight in Buffalo.
So the thought of hanging a banner in Staples even if it pales in comparison to the 16 league championship banners owned by the Lakers is one that is embraced by some players, although not all.
I think that would be special because its a moment in history, forward Caron Butler said Friday. Winning 50 (games) is a special moment. Acquiring guys like Chris Paul and Blake Griffin and having the roster we have, expectations have soared through the roof. Were trying to do big things and trying to build some momentum for years to come.
The Clippers won their franchise-first 50th game Wednesday, beating the Phoenix...

Blake Griffin gave the Clippers a 15-point lead over the Lakers in the fourth quarter Sunday, their largest of the game, with a finger roll dunk. Griffin received the outlet from Chris Paul and changed his mind mid-air from a layup to a dunk as he glided through the air and threw it down:
I’m not sure whether or not this is a huge problem, or just a close-knit group of players arguing like any brothers would. Either way, reports are coming out of Los Angeles that Clippers big men Blake Griffin and Deandre Jordan have gotten into a notable argument while on the bench during games. Also, it appears that Jordan wants nothing to do with head coach Vinny Del Negro...
The Clippers are no doubt proud of their 2012-13 season — the team’s first 50-win season — but that doesn’t mean they want to be embarrassed by their rivals, the Lakers.
The Clippers have a six-game lead on the Golden State Warriors in the Pacific Division, and as long as they hold on through the next six games, Los Angeles will win their first division title. The Clippers...
