Chris Paul and Doc Rivers explain where the L.A. Clippers need to improve

The Los Angeles Clippers are seen as one of the major threats in the Western Conference to derail the Golden State Warriors' title charge.

With their big three, the Clippers have been tipped by most to occupy the third seed in the west heading into next year's playoffs.

But it seems head coach Doc Rivers and point guard Chris Paul are far from happy with how they are heading into the new campaign.

You can't read too much into preseason, but L.A.'s performances have been far from convincing and Paul spoke about how they can improve.

"Our cuts can be sharper, our passes can be better - just knowing the offence more," Paul said. "The things that we've added, even our first unit, we need to clean up things.

"Just like any professional team or any team in general, it's about consistency. That's the things I'm sure Coach [Doc Rivers] is going to harp on - the fact that we show in spurts that we can do it. But it's about who does it the longest, the right way."

There are 82 games for the team to get it right, but Rivers was a lot less analytical of his players, simply saying 'everything' needs to improve.
