It has pained Blake Griffin to see his Clippers lose games by double-digit margins to the Miami Heat, San Antonio Spurs and Denver Nuggets, in addition to getting swept in the season series, 3-0, by the Oklahoma City Thunder.

And in Griffin's eyes, there is some significance in the Clippers' inability to beat quality teams recently.

"It means something because obviously we feel like we should be in the game more than we were against San Antonio and Miami," Griffin said. "It's not something where we don't feel like we can get there. It's just something where we haven't gotten there yet."
