DOC RIVERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Doc Rivers and Jermaine O'Neal get into it during game 2

Doc Rivers once called Jermaine O'Neal training camp MVP when he was with Boston. Time has passed, and Doc Rivers is out west, and so is O'Neal. Doc Rivers seemed to be upset that O'Neal was playing some hard defense on his precious Blake Griffin. Who went off for 35 in the Clippers 138-98 win over Golden State. Some point to Doc being upset with Jermaine about being...

Game 2 a must-win for Clippers vs. Warriors

PLAYA VISTA, Calif. -- Two weeks before the playoffs began, Clippers coach Doc Rivers warned his players that they probably would lose a game at home.

5 things: Clippers pull away from Bucks for 50th win

LOS ANGELES -- Doc Rivers' mantra this season has been process over results. The Clippers' coach remains even-keeled regardless of a win or a loss, choosing to focus on how Los Angeles played on a given night rather than the final score. With a pivotal five-game road trip with playoff implications looming, the Clippers understandably overlooked the lowly Milwaukee Bucks on...
