first_imgClippers coach Doc Rivers on Monday said the team is taking the threatening March 14 tweet directed at guard Chris Paul and his wife Jada like it’s real.The tweet, sent the day after the Clippers were routed by the Cleveland Cavaliers 114-90 at Staples Center, read, “@CP3 if I knew where you lived I’d probably kill your wife and frame you for it. I watch dateline I get away with it.”According to TMZ, the Los Angeles Police Department is investigating the incident.“We take everything serious,” Rivers said before his team took on the Boston Celtics at Staples Center. “We’ve had a couple in the past and it’s just the way we live now. You don’t know what is actually threatening or not. But, unfortunately, in this day and time you have to take everything serious. That’s the way it is, and it’s too bad.” Rivers didn’t say it, but he spoke as if the entire team was able to breathe a sign of relief. “I do think that your mood changes a little bit when you know that he is coming back,” Rivers said. “But that is how it feels; he is back. He was at shootaround (Sunday morning at Staples Center) and he had to leave the arena. It is just good to see him healthy, and I think everyone feels better.”Griffin can’t be at the arena during his suspension while the games are being played.Griffin will play in seven games before the playoffs if he does indeed play against the Wizards on Sunday. The only way that wouldn’t happen would be if Griffin suffers a setback.“It is going to be good to get him back for the last few games of the season so he can get his legs under him,” Pierce said. “Hopefully, we can get a hot streak going until the playoffs.”Wilcox recalledGuard C.J. Wilcox has been recalled from his fourth D-League assignment. In his latest – for the Canton Charge – he averaged 21.3 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists in three games.Wilcox has played a total of 26 D-League games this season for the Charge and the Bakersfield Jam. Overall he has averaged 17.6 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.6 assists.Wilcox, in his second season with the Clippers, has appeared in 14 games for the Clippers this season. He’s averaging 1.6 points in 4.4 minutes. TMZ also reported a Twitter troll has been hounding Paul and his wife the past year.Griffin’s returnFor three months the Clippers have been awaiting the return of power forward Blake Griffin, who has not played since Christmas night because of two injuries, one of which – a fractured right hand – was sustained when he punched a member of the team’s equipment staff.When it was announced before Sunday’s victory over the Denver Nuggets that Griffin would be back next Sunday against visiting Washington after he serves a four-game suspension for the punch, it immediately lifted the spirits of the Clippers. That was the feeling of veteran forward Paul Pierce and coach Doc Rivers.“I think (Griffin’s return) is good for the morale of the group,” Pierce said. “We know now that we could get through the regular season and win a lot of games without him, but our goal is to win a championship and we know we can’t do that without him.”center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img
