first_img Oram: In trading Blake Griffin, the Clippers gave up what they have so often been without — a superstar “As long as I look around this place, I don’t see any banners in here,” Rivers said, referring to a lack of Clippers championship banners at Staples Center. “That’s the difference. Until we do that, we’ve got to keep mixing it up. We had a good run here. We got close. That was a good group.“We had our chances. But when you blow your chances and don’t get them, you usually don’t stick around and get them back. I can name a thousand teams that it’s happened. We had a shot. We had a shot at Oklahoma and didn’t get it. We had a shot with Houston.”Rivers referred to second-round playoff losses to the Thunder in 2014 and the Rockets the following spring.“Our goal was to win it,” he continued. “I don’t think anyone understands how hard it is to win a title. Until you do it, you’re going to be frustrated a lot. You’re going to have to make tough decisions and this one is a tough decision. You’ve got to be honest with yourself.”MEDICAL UPDATEInjured guard Austin Rivers said he expects to return to the Clippers’ lineup before the All-Star break Feb. 16-18. He has been sidelined for 16 games because of a right ankle injury suffered in a Dec. 29 victory over the Lakers.“I’m right there, I’m about a week and a half away, I’ll be back soon,” he said.GALLINARI’S RETURNPower forward Danilo Gallinari scored 15 points on 6-for-12 shooting with five rebounds and one assist in 25 minutes in his return to the lineup from a left gluteus maximus injury on Tuesday. His tested himself by taking an early charge on Portland’s Jusuf Nurkic and landing on his glute.“I was a little scared after I fell down, but I felt good,” Gallinari said. “I had to take a charge.” The Clippers are in search of talented young players and draft picks. They also want to shed payroll and create financial flexibility that could land them high-caliber free agents, especially in 2019. It’s possible they could pursue LeBron James and/or Paul George this coming summer, though.Anything is possible.Everything is open to discussion.Related Articles Now what? Where do the Clippers go from here, after trading Blake Griffin to the Detroit Pistons on Monday?

The Clippers’ breakup, while shocking and heartbreaking to some, was the best way forward, according to Frank, the team’s president of basketball operations, and Rivers, the coach.
