The Clippers lost their opening game of the first-round series, but clinched a 98-96 win over the Golden State Warriors last night to take a 2-1 lead.
The guard told reporters: "Last year, we lose a game like this. That foundation of learning how to win, learning not to splinter and fragment, is huge for us going forward.
"There's going to be adversity, especially where we want to go. But you have to find ways to deal with it and bounce back from it."
The Clippers face the Warriors again on Sunday.
