LAS VEGAS (AP) With their offseason of controversy behind them, the Los Angeles Clippers got back to the business of basketball Tuesday, opening a four-day training camp in a city known for its temptations and distractions.
But coach Doc Rivers, after conducting a four-hour workout at UNLV's Mendenhall Center, said he isn't worried about how his players will deal with the Las Vegas nightlife this week.
"Listen, if you want to win, you'll go to sleep. If you want to lose, you'll go party," he said. "It's just that simple, and I told them that. I told them no curfews, you're on your own, you can do what you want. If they're ready, I'll know. If they can't practice, it means they're doing something they shouldn't do."
