Chris Paul believes the Clippers need to start the season better than they have in recent years, which starts with protecting home court: "We've talked about it a lot. The very first day of camp, our team meetings, we talked about getting off to a good start. One of the biggest things for us is our home court hasn't really been a home court. I don't know -- for some reason we haven't made it a tough place to play."

Does Luc Mbah a Moute think it's important to win the starting SF for the Clippers: "I've been in different positions on this team. So, to me, I'm not going at it as 'I'm the starter' or whatever. I think we have a lot of guys that can play, that can fill in that position as well... For me, sometimes I started and I only played 5-10 minutes. Sometimes I didn't start and I played 25 minutes. Coach (Doc Rivers) knows what he's doing and for us, me especially, is just be ready."
