Los Angeles Clippers players staged a silent protest at center court before they took on the Golden State Warriors in Sunday’s Game 4 of their first-round series.

Responding to their team’s owner Donald Sterling’s alleged racist comments, the Clippers turned their warm up shirts inside out to mask the team logo. They also wore black wristbands or armbands, and sported black socks.

“It’s just us, only us. We’re all we got,” point guard Chris Paul told teammates before they ran out onto the court, according to the Associated Press.

Golden State defeated the Clippers 118-97.
