Blake Griffin doesn't care whether DeMarcus Cousins thinks he's just an actor, although Griffin did hear about Cousins' criticism from his acting coach.

Griffin and the Los Angeles Clippers have bigger aspirations than answering the Sacramento forward's taunts, although Griffin made sure Cousins remembers where he stands in this California rivalry.

Griffin had 27 points and 14 rebounds, Randy Foye scored 25 points while hitting seven 3-pointers, and the surging Clippers moved within a half-game of the Pacific Division lead with a 109-94 victory over the Kings on Saturday night.
