The Clippers are a “really, really good team.”

Don’t take my word for it. Ask Phoenix head coach Alvin Gentry, who led a somewhat undermanned Suns team to the 2010 Western Conference Finals. On Saturday, prior to his team’s 117-99 loss at Staples Center, Gentry iterated exactly that.

“I don’t see any reason why [the Clippers] shouldn’t be thinking about playing in June,” he said with candor.
