It's been a tumultuous last few days for the Los Angeles Clippers, and for the first time since the whole Donald Sterling fiasco started, the Clippers were at the Staples Center to play a game Tuesday night, trying to take a 3-2 lead in their first-round series with the Golden State Warriors.

The fans greeted the team and head coach Doc Rivers with a standing ovation, and Rivers even shook some hands of the fans sitting courtside.

It's great to see the fans get behind their ballclub with the Sterling situation at least temporarily resolved.
