Video: Players talk Phoenix loss

LOS ANGELES -- Here are video interviews with the Clippers' DeAndre Jordan, Reggie Evans, Chris Paul and Blake Griffin following their 91-87 loss to the Phoenix Suns on Thursday at the Staples Center. The team's locker room did not open to the media until more than an hour after the final buzzer; league rules require it open up between 10-15 minutes after a game's end.

In the first of two videos, Jordan took on a sarcastic tone following the game, joking that the Clippers did not hold a meeting for all of that time but were simply waiting for media to come in. He didn't answer seriously when asked if he thought this was the team's worst loss of the season. Also in the video is the interview with Evans, who said the Clippers need to play with more energy and talk more on defense.

In the second video is Paul, who said he almost felt as if the Clippers were trying to lose the game. He said only time will tell if the postgame meeting was effective in solving the team's problems. Also in the second video is Griffin, who was more positive in confirming the logistics of the meeting and calling it "very productive."
