The Los Angeles Clippers are silently protesting owner Donald Sterling's alleged racist comments made on an audio recording.

The Clippers entered the court before Game 4 of their first-round playoff series at the Golden State Warriors on Sunday wearing their warmup uniforms.

After huddling together at center court and tossing the warmups to the ground, they went through their pregame routine wearing red Clippers' shirts inside-out to hide the team's logo.

All the players wore black wrist bands and black socks, with point guard Chris Paul wearing a black sleeve.

Clippers players remained silent regarding Sterling's alleged comments before the game. Coach Doc Rivers said he will continue speaking for the team on the issue.

In the recording, obtained by TMZ, the man believed to be Sterling says to his girlfriend V. Stiviano: "It bothers me a lot that you want to broadcast that you're associating with black people. Do you have to? You can sleep with (black people). You can bring them in, you can do whatever you want. The little I ask you is not to promote it on that ... and not to bring them to my games."

A longer version of the audio tape was obtained by Deadspin.com on Sunday, which revealed more racist comments allegedly made by Sterling. The man explains to Stiviano that he helps his black employees after she asks if he is a racist.

"I support them and give them food, and clothes, and cars, and houses," he said. "Who gives it to them? Does someone else give it to them? Do I know that I have -- who makes the game? Do I make the game, or do they make the game? Is there 30 owners, that created the league?"

Commissioner Adam Silver said Saturday the NBA "plans to get to the bottom" of the situation, but has not yet come to a decision.

Sterling was not expected to attend Sunday's Clippers-Golden State Warriors playoff game in Oakland.

President Barack Obama, speaking in Malaysia on Sunday, responded to the firestorm.

Obama said it is a reminder that the U.S. "continues to wrestle with the legacy of race and slavery and segregation, that's still there, the vestiges of discrimination.

"... We constantly have to be on guard on racial attitudes that divide us rather than embracing our diversity as a strength. ... We've made enormous strides, but you're going to continue to see this percolate up every so often. And I think that we just have to be clear and steady in denouncing it, teaching our children differently, but also remaining hopeful that part of why statements like this stand out some much is because there has been this shift in how we view ourselves."

Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan also responded through a statement on Sunday.

"I look at this from two perspectives -- as a current owner and a former player. As an owner, I'm obviously disgusted that a fellow team owner could hold such sickening and offensive views," he said. "I'm confident that (commissioner) Adam Silver will make a full investigation and take appropriate action quickly.

"As a former player, I'm completely outraged. There is no room in the NBA -- or anywhere else -- for the kind of racism and hatred that Mr. Sterling allegedly expressed. I am appalled that this type of ignorance still exists within our country and at the highest levels of our sport. In a league where the majority of players are African-American, we cannot and must not tolerate discrimination at any level."

Several others in the sports world expressed outrage over the comments on Saturday.

The Clippers issued a statement late Saturday, which read: "Mr. Sterling is emphatic that what is reflected on that recording is not consistent with, nor does it reflect his views, beliefs or feelings."
