Tommy Lasorda wanders into Clippers huddle during timeout, makes speech

Tommy Lasorda attended Tuesday's Clippers-Suns game in Phoenix, a 30-minute drive from the Dodgers Spring Training complex. And according to Dodger Insider, Lasorda did more than just watch the game. The 86-year-old (who was sitting courtside) worked his way inside LA's huddle during a timeout and delivered a motivational speech:

"I just kind of said something to them," Lasorda related. "I told them I'm proud of them. I said, 'The second half belongs to us!' I talked to (Blake) Griffin, I told him he's a star and he hasn't scratched the surface yet. People pay a lot of money to see you play, so you better come out and play!"

 The Clippers went on to win the game 104-96. Excellent work, Tommy.
