Before Game 4 of their playoff series against the Golden State Warriors, the team took off their shooting shirts and dumped them at center court. They also flipped their Clippers T-shirts inside out, hiding the logo.

The team discussed boycotting Game 4 during a 45-minute team meeting on Saturday, but quickly decided against it, according to the Associated Press.

"I think the biggest statement we can make as men, not as black men, as men, is to stick together and show how strong we are as a group," Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. "It's easy to protest. The protest will be in our play."
