Bad blood between Rockets, Clippers carries over after game

LOS ANGELES (AP) The hot tempers that flared up during the Los Angeles Clippers' victory over the Houston Rockets have carried over after the game.

Several security guards were present outside the Rockets' locker room Monday night following a 113-102 loss to the Clippers that got heated on the court. Citing anonymous NBA sources, ESPN reported several Rockets players headed toward the Clippers' locker room afterward, seeking a confrontation, but were escorted away by security before anything got physical.

Asked about it, Clippers coach Doc Rivers would only say his team was in its own locker room. "Their entire team was not in their locker room," he said, referring to the Rockets.
