At a news conference Wednesday when he was introduced as the Clippers' new coach, Doc Rivers said what caught his eye about the team last season was its roster full of talented players. "The reason why I wanted this when it was made available, it was because of what they have and not what they don't have," Rivers said at the Clippers' training facility in Playa Vista. Rivers was fully aware the Clippers lost a first-round playoff series to Memphis, and he knew there had been grumblings among the Clippers' players about Coach Vinny Del Negro, who subsequently was not rehired.

Join our live Google+ Hangout today at 11:45 a.m. when Times Lakers reporter Mike Bresnahan and Clippers reporter Brad Turner discuss their respective teams. The Clippers are suddenly the dominant team in L.A., currently riding a franchise-record 14-game winning streak. As Turner wrote earlier this week, "This winning streak has delivered the Clippers to a place few could have imagined. "The Clippers have the best record in the NBA . "To repeat, the Clippers have the best record in the entire NBA. "They got to this 22-6 record by extending their franchise-best winning streak to 14 consecutive games, a 112-100 victory over the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday night at Staples Center another of the wins along the way. "The victory allowed the Clippers to move a half-game ahead of Oklahoma City (21-6)

Doc Rivers' recruiting efforts didn't pay off. The Clippers coach lobbied his fellow Western Conference coaches to vote for DeAndre Jordan as an All-Star reserve, but Jordan was not among the seven players selected Thursday. The West reserves are Clippers point guard Chris Paul, Portland Trail Blazers power forward LaMarcus Aldridge, Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard and guard James Harden, Dallas Mavericks power forward Dirk Nowitzki and San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker.

He has played in only two games so far, but Reggie Evans already has had an effect on the Clippers. They have seen his energy, effort and intensity. They have seen how hard he works on defense and rebounding, two areas in which the Clippers would like to improve. Evans is averaging 6.5 rebounds a game in 17.5 minutes, and he's still trying to work himself into basketball shape after missing five games recovering from a sprained right foot. "Reggie is constant energy," Clippers Coach Vinny Del Negro said before Wednesday's game against Miami.

When they write the history of the Clippers, a laughable concept until recently, the date of June 26, 2013, may be the centerpiece. Until Blake Griffin showed up, followed by Chris Paul, any history of the Clippers was a knee-slapper. How about a chapter on Benoit Benjamin. Another on blown lottery picks. Jim Mora could write one. Playoffs? You kidding me? Playoffs? Maybe Jon Stewart could giggle his way through the narration. This wasn't a franchise. It was a train wreck. Coaches came, coaches went.

Chris Paul had an MRI exam Sunday on his strained left hamstring that was negative, the Clippers announced. The team also said that Paul will be listed as day to day, but that the 6-foot All-Star guard is questionable for Monday's game against the New Jersey Nets at Staples Center. Paul was injured late in the fourth quarter in the Clippers' victory over the Lakers on Saturday night at Staples Center. If Paul doesn't play, Chauncey Billups probably will start at point guard and Randy Foye will move from the bench into the starting shooting guard role.

It is difficult to tell when Clippers guard Eric Bledsoe is up or down because he is so quiet. But Bledsoe acknowledged he has struggled with his confidence recently. On Sunday against the Boston Celtics, Bledsoe played as if he wasn't having any doubts in his abilities. Bledsoe tied his career high in points with 23 and field goals made at nine - he took 15 shots. He tied his season high in assists with 10, to go along with seven rebounds, in the Clippers' 106-104 loss.

Turn, turn, turn. That is, as in turning the ball over. One consistent thread through the Clippers' first five games has been inconsistent ballhandling. They've had 78 turnovers in those five games, four of them losses, an alarming average of 15.6 turnovers a game. There was a season high of 21 against Dallas on Saturday and a low of 11 at Utah on Friday, although there were other assorted issues in the loss to the Jazz, which featured a fourth-quarter collapse. The same problem surfaced in the lone Clippers' victory, a 93-90 win against the Timberwolves on Monday at Staples Center.

This is what we know for sure after 32 games of the NBA season ? Yes, the Clippers really have figured out how to beat the Kings. Then again, so has most of the NBA, with few exceptions. Three of the Clippers' 10 victories this season have come against Sacramento. "We've had enough bad luck during the year, hopefully it evens out," said Clippers Coach Vinny Del Negro, whose team had lost 11 straight on the road before winning the last three. "We were fortunate in a way we played well enough to win [Monday at Sacramento]

Reporting from San Antonio -- How will this trip end for the Clippers? Can they return home with a 3-3 record, or will they limp home at 2-4? Considering that their next opponent is the San Antonio Spurs, it will be a challenge for the Clippers to finish off this six-game, 10-day trip in winning fashion. In addition, Blake Griffin suffered a mild left ankle sprain in the fourth quarter of Wednesday night's loss in New Jersey, though after the game he said that he would play against the Spurs.
