LOS ANGELES -- Los Angeles Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro didn't even want to talk about it. He has often said that the first game back from a long trip is arguably the hardest game of the trip. It's almost like a continuation where you are still trying to get adjusted to being back home and playing in front of your home crowd. "Let's not even have that mentality right now," Del Negro said. "We got to be ready."
