A day after the Los Angeles Clippers lost to the Indiana Pacers, Blake Griffin was still upset with his team's effort.
"The effort by the starters was pretty bad," Griffin said after Tuesday's practice. "It was embarrassing for us."
Griffin didn't address reporters after the 109-106 loss, bypassing the postgame news conference.
The Clippers were trailing by 24 points in the third quarter Monday when Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro benched his starters and went with the team's second unit. The bench made it a game again before the Pacers pulled out the victory.
"You'd love to sit here and say it's a wake-up call and things will be different," Griffin said. "That's the idea and that's what we talked about and that's what we want to do moving forward but we have to prove that. I'm tired of saying that we got to do this and we got to do that, and then say we will and go back and forth. I kind of want our actions to speak for ourselves."
