Blake Griffin on what happened outside the Clippers' locker room postgame: "We were where we were supposed to be. We were in our locker room. So whatever happens over there — I mean, we can't control what anybody else does. We control what we did. Everybody was in our seats. That's it. You should ask them."

Clippers coach Doc Rivers on what happened outside the Clippers' locker room postgame: "Let's put it like this, our team was in our locker room. That's all I'll say.
