(CNN, May 4, 2014)- It’s been a week since the world learned that Donald Sterling had made racist remarks on audio recordings, casting a cloud over the professional basketball team he owns, the Los Angeles Clippers.

On Saturday, the team had two wins to celebrate.

First, the NBA announced it will appoint a new chief executive officer to oversee the team’s operations. The appointment will be made in consultation with the Clippers management.

“The best way to ensure the stability of the team during this difficult situation is to move quickly and install a CEO to oversee the Clippers organization,” NBA Executive Vice President Mike Bass said in a statement. “The process of identifying that individual is underway.”

Second, the team showed that it had truly shaken off the non-basketball distractions. The Clippers defeated the Golden State Warriors 126-121 to win its first round in the NBA playoffs.

The Clippers now advance to face the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday.

But the Sterling story won’t go away any time soon.

After dodging the media for days, the woman who recorded Clippers’ owner Donald Sterling making racist remarks urged him to apologize.

In an exclusive with ABC’s Barbara Walters on Friday, V. Stiviano said Sterling is hurting after the scandal that turned him into a sports pariah.

“I think he feels very alone. Not truly supported by those around him,” Stiviano, 31, said. “Tormented. Emotionally traumatized.”
