Clippers’ Doc Rivers leaves futures of Chris Paul, Blake Griffin open-ended

PLAYA VISTA – Doc Rivers gives the credit to Chris Paul and Blake Griffin. For a franchise with a transient history and no heritage to speak of, those two superstars have lent the Clippers stability and credibility.

“These guys have been responsible for the birth of our franchise in a lot of ways,” the Clippers coach said Wednesday.

Put the annual postseason flameouts aside for a moment. The Clippers have won 50-plus games for five consecutive seasons, one of only two teams to do that during that stretch; their players show up on postseason awards ballots year after year; it is generally

Heisler: Whatever the Clippers are, they’re not going anywhere

Clippers forever.
