JC: It doesn't matter. If they play well, they get the headlines. If they don't, they get the headlines. We won 17 in a row. It was talked about a little bit. But then the Lakers won three or four, and everyone was like, Here we go, they're rolling. They've earned it with the history they have. We're trying to make our own history.
What will be considered a great year for the Clippers?
JC: Ultimately we'll be judged by the playoffs. Getting to the conference finals and then winning an NBA championship is what it's about.
Your reaction when DeAndre Jordan threw down that dunk on Detroit's Brandon Knight?
JC: I was on the bench. Matt Barnes ran down to the other end of the court and started doing jumping jacks. Blake Griffin is running circles next to me. I'm grabbing my head like I don't believe what I just saw. Give Brandon Knight credit for making the right defensive play. It was like DeAndre didn't see him because he was so high up.
