Here's some quotes from Eric Patten's story that says otherwise:
"We got off to slow start, down 10, and our bench," Paul said before pausing briefly. "That's what it's always about."
"That's why I keep telling ya'll, man, your locker room makes a huge difference," Paul said. "You've got to have professionals. Ronny's not sitting over there on the bench pouting. He's cheering, being a great teammate and when his number's called, he's ready to go."
"When you see somebody not complain and not get as much playing time as maybe they would like and they just don't complain, they go out the next game and do what we need them to do," Griffin said. "It makes you play at another level."
"We have a lot of talent, but we have guys that are smart," Griffin said. "We have veteran players and on this team playing time's tough, it's hard to split it around. But if you stay ready, then you're going to have nights like that and that's what wins games."
"On the bench I said, 'That's a true professional, right there,'" Blake Griffin said. "He didn't play much the last two games and came in at a critical time: putback, putback, rebounds, blocks, that's tough to do."
