Caron Butler says Clippers must remain united during losing streak

The Los Angeles Clippers have lost four games in a row, but forward Caron Butler said there is no panicking.

Caron Butler said that while the Los Angeles Clippers' four-game losing streak is "frustrating," he believes that the veteran leadership will help the team right itself, according to the Los Angeles Times.

"A lot of people say, 'Go harder, harder, harder, harder.' But you have to put smarter in there too," Butler said. "Go smarter, go harder and execute and make some adjustments, and we're going to do that."

Turnovers and a slippage on the offensive end have done the Clippers in of late. Add to the fact that they're giving up high field goal percentages to their opponents, and they have a right to be concerned. That's unlike the Clippers of this year; they're in the top-10 in both offensive and defensive ratings this season.

Butler said that the Clippers must get back to having fun, and he added that the adversity will help the team's growth moving forward.

The Clippers lost in overtime to the Oklahoma City Thunder in the first of the four losses, then fell to the Brooklyn Nets, Atlanta Hawks and the New Orleans Hornets.
