OAKLAND -- Los Angeles Clippers players staged their own type of quiet protest before Sunday's NBA playoff game at Oracle Arena with the Warriors, wearing their red warm-up shirts inside-out before the game.

The Clippers played their first game since tapes that are allegedly of owner Donald Sterling making racist comments surfaced.

The Clippers took the court for Game 4 of their first-round playoff series in their team jackets, huddled and removed them to reveal the plain red shirts, with no team identification visible, for their pregame warm-ups. Los Angeles players wore black socks and black arm bands as well. The Warriors went on to win the game 118-97 to even the seven-game series at 2-2.
