Clippers News: Doc Rivers Upset About Team’s ‘Pouting’
Los Angeles Clippers head coach Doc Rivers called out his team for pouting after falling for the third time in four games, this time losing to the Cleveland Cavaliers 88-82 Saturday night.
They aren’t where they need to be maturity-wise according to Rivers.
He talked to ESPN’s Arash Markazi:
“We did a lot of pouting in the game,” Rivers said Saturday. “You can’t play that way. You have to keep playing. I always call them emotional hijacks and we had a lot of that going on. That happens, but you have to be able to pull yourself out of it individually or as a group and I don’t think we did a good job of that.”
The Clippers will continue an eight-game road trip Monday against the Philadelphia 76ers. Will the pouting continue?
