There have been moments in which the Clippers and Golden State Warriors have expressed displeasure with each other, leaving many to think the two teams have taken issue with the other's perceived antics. The Clippers didn't like the way the Warriors celebrated after two wins over them. The Warriors didn't like how the Clippers went to "Lob City" mode in a win. After the Clippers beat the Warriors by 26 points at Staples Center, Golden State Coach Mark Jackson said this after the game: "What you've got to do as a coach, as a player, is just let it soak in and remember it," Jackson said. "That's all. Mark it down with permanent ink ... We'll see ya." Well, the Clippers and Warriors will see each other Monday afternoon in a game on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, in Oakland. Will there be peace between the two teams? Maybe not not after what Jackson did in the loss to the Clippers. Jackson watched Chris Paul throw consecutive lob passes to DeAndre Jordan, one off the backboard. His team down, 94-56, at that point, Jackson called a timeout and glared at the Clippers' bench. The Clippers looked back at Jackson. Then after the game, Jackson made his above comments. "We have to be focused," Blake Griffin said. "We're not going to get into newspaper clippings. We're not focused on that. We could care less what they say about, 'We're going to be ready for them. We're going to do this and that.' It's a game. We're going to go out and play. It's going to mean a lot to us because it's the next game on our schedule. That's it." Griffin was asked whether the banter makes the game more fun. "I haven't really said much," Griffin said. "I'm not sure this side has said much. We've just gone out and played. They've beat us twice. So whatever they want to say, they can say. But we've got to be ready and we will be." The Clippers, who didn't practice Sunday before they flew to Oakland, are at the halfway point of the 82-game season and are 32-9. Two of the losses have been against the Warriors, one by 21 points in Oakland the last time the Clippers were there this month. "We didn't play very well and they took it to us up there," Clippers Coach Vinny Del Negro said. "So, like I always tell my guys, if you don't want guys celebrating, then play better. So, we'll go up there and see how Chris is feeling and be ready to go." Del Negro joked that he writes "most things in permanent ink so I don't forget them." "We've just got to be ready to play," Del Negro said. "It doesn't matter who it is. It's always about us, for me. Whether it's in pencil or magic marker or ink, it doesn't matter to me. Just go play and play well and you'll be fine. We're more than capable of doing that. We know it'll be a tough game, but hopefully that makes us better." -Broderick Turner
