(Los Angeles Clipper) Spencer Hawes has been a massive disappointment in his first season as a Clipper.

Is there anything (Doc) Rivers can do to help Hawes 65 games into the season?

“No, I just think he’s going to keep getting better,” Rivers said Friday morning, hours before the Clippers would play the Dallas Mavericks at American Airlines Center. “He’s obviously not had the year we’d like, but it’s a long year. It still is a long year.

“It doesn’t matter if it’s late in the year. I’ve seen guys have horrible regular seasons and then break out in the playoffs. You don’t know where it’s coming, but we still believe in him just like the other 20 teams that wanted to sign him in the league. It’s there and we have to get it out.”
