Blake Griffin Confident in the LA Clippers’ Title Chances

Outside of the LA Clippers’ locker room, very few people believe the team can win the NBA Championship. That doesn’t matter to Blake Griffin—he believes. Per the LA Times: “‘To everybody else, I don’t know,’ Griffin said. ‘To us, we feel like we’re a team that’s capable of contending for a championship. We’re not afraid to see any team in the playoffs. That’s where we are. We’re not really worried about what everybody else is wondering [about] what we are or where they are going to put us as far as being able to contend with the top teams.’ The Clippers are the fourth-place team in the Western Conference and are still contending with Denver and Memphis to see who will be seeded third, fourth and fifth in the playoffs. But the key to it all, Griffin said, is to have a sustained effort during the last five regular-season games. ‘We’re nothing without consistency,’ Griffin said. “But it’s more about the effort given and it’s more about the intensity that we have. … If we’re consistently mediocre, that’s not a very good thing.’”

    Just to clarify, the Clippers cannot get the fifth seed, as they’ve already won the Pacific division. They can, however, get the fourth seed, while Memphis gets the fifth seed with a better record (and home-court advantage).

    I understand he’s starting to mature and all, but talking title?

    Look at their starters +/- except for CP3, they’re all like -60 in a 7 game series that they won.
