Doc Rivers: Los Angeles Clippers growth has been "terrific"

Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers believes that his team have grown in the last month.

Doc Rivers has said that the Los Angeles Clippers have shown "terrific" growth over the last month.

The Pacific Division leaders eased to a 102-87 win over the Utah Jazz last night.

The coach told reporters: "That's an area of growth, in my opinion. [DeAndre Jordan] and Blake [Griffin], we noticed early in the year that if they got early fouls, they were more concerned about not fouling, which creates more trouble.

"But tonight, I think there were four or five minutes left in the game and somebody drove against DJ Then [Jordan] jumps up, blocks the basket, and no foul because he got his hands up.

"That wouldn't have happened a month ago. That would have been a dunk by that guy. And that's terrific."

The Clippers play they Denver Nuggets tomorrow.
