"It's just being more aggressive. That's it," Thornton said. "But actually, I'm being more patient and not trying to force it every time, not trying to always split the double-team."

Thornton said his shot selection -- which at times has been questionable -- has not changed but he is being more focused on his shooting fundamentals and mechanics.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "Steve Kerr has nothing on Steve Novak as far as a shooting stroke." -- Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy, talking about F Steve Novak's prowess as a three-point shooter.
