The Clippers players quietly protested by taking off their warm-ups at mid-court and wearing their shirts inside out, they also wore black socks and wristbands during the game.
To show some unity and support with their league brethren, the Portland Trail Blazers are also wearing black socks for their game against the Houston Rockets.
