"(Sunday night in Sacramento) was a down for us, how we bounce back, how we gather ourselves and continue to get better in certain areas is very important".
"We've got some guys right now that are not with us 100 per cent with their game and it takes time, it's a grind", Casey said. Redick's three free throws with less than a second remaining gave the Clippers a 54-45 lead at halftime. The Clippers are off to a franchise-best start and lead the league in several defensive categories, including points allowed (91.5 per game), defensive efficiency (92.7) and opponents' shooting percentage (40.6 percent). The Clippers (9-1) will go for their seventh win in a row Monday night when they host the Brooklyn Nets. The Clippers' star forward shrugged off an ice cold start to score his team's first 10 points of the third quarter, and continued to dismantle the Raptors with an array of accurate outside shots, incisive passes, and skillful drives.

You see the sense of urgency, you know what I mean? They finally took the lead with 6:01 left in the game. "I think we can all hold ourselves accountable and I think we all want to be a good defender but we have to do it as a team".
Casey wasn't seeking any sympathy. The Nets' stopover at Staples features back-to-back games against the Clippers and the Lakers on Tuesday before they wrap up their journey at Oklahoma City on Friday. "Like you said, we have one of the toughest schedules [right now], but that's no excuse, we've got to use that to our motivation and be better".
"As a point guard it's nearly like being a quarterback and doing a two-minute drill or something like that", Paul said after the loss to the Grizzlies. In a road trip with five games over eight days there isn't time to worry about what happened yesterday. The Raptors are winless in their last nine visits to Houston. The Clippers are a torrid 13-2 as they open a six-game road excursion while the Mavericks have lost 11 of 13 games during a awful start to the campaign. The Clippers are 6-0 away from home, the longest road winning streak to start a season in franchise history.
