With Doc Rivers now head coach of the Los Angeles Clippers, Blake Griffin expects to see a change in the direction of the team's playing style.

The Clippers are expected to place a greater importance on defense and a slower pace on offense.

"Lob City doesn't exist anymore. Lob City is done," Griffin said. "We're moving on and we're going to find our identity during training camp and that will be our new city. No more Lob City."

The Clippers were ranked 19th in pace last season, which placed them already below the league average.

"Our offense is going to have a totally different look this year," said Griffin, who added that he'd done a lot of work in the offseason on his face-up game from 10 to 15 feet. "Our offense is going to have a lot of movement and floor spacing. I'm looking forward to it."
