Some strong words from Adande. Love his response to Odom's quote. Griffin's quote is excellent as well. Bold added for emphasis. "Odom's initial reaction showed how the Lakers were looking for an early checkout and had no interest in battling to the buzzer. "I understand during the game, when we're fighting for position," Odom said. "But they're up 9 with five seconds left. You're going to ram me in my back ... I mean, it was a bad reaction [on Odom's part], but, you know, not at that time." Later he added, "I don't know what you're going to get out of that ram in the back, in that situation." A rebound, perhaps? "There's never a situation when I'm not going to go to the glass," Griffin said. "I would think of all the people, he would know that. I would expect the same thing from anybody else. I don't care if we're up. If the ball comes off, I get the rebound, it seals the game." If you've watched Griffin, you know that's his style. And if you've watched the Clippers, winners of nine of their past 12, you know that as of late they play winning basketball, no matter how much it infringes on their opponents' plans."
