Clippers-Spurs series giving lopsided 1st round some drama

One of the most memorable opening rounds in NBA playoff history came last season. One of the least memorable is playing out this season. And if it wasn't for the Clippers-Spurs series, fans might be begging for the days of the best-of-five format to return so this one-sided first round could end faster. Seven of the eight series started with a team taking a 2-0 lead. San Antonio...

Clippers seek two-game lead against Spurs

For a series many expected to be the most competitive of the first round, the opening game was far from a thriller. A wealth of playoff experience can only help the San Antonio Spurs regroup from that one-sided affair, though being down heading into a Game 2 is fairly unfamiliar territory.

The Clippers' bench remains a glaring weakness

It's no secret: the Clippers' bench is bad. Sunday's Game 1 was no exception, with the Spurs' launching into a massive run during a short bench stint in the first half. But just how bad is the bench? With the exception of Jamal Crawford, William Scott Davis writes, there's not really any second-unit player Doc Rivers can rely on:"While the Clippers starters built a comfortable lead...

Doc Rivers: Players Want To Be Like Mike, Coaches Want To Be Like Pop

Doc Rivers talked about how much he admires Gregg Popovich ahead of the Los Angeles Clippers' first round series against the San Antonio Spurs. "I think every coach in the league wants to be like Pop," Rivers said. "Players want to be like Mike. We want to be like Pop." Rivers nearly replaced Popovich as head coach of the Spurs in 1999. The Spurs had started the lockout-shortened...

Blake Griffin Throwing Some Playful Shade at Austin Rivers’ Game

When the Los Angeles Clippers traded for Austin Rivers, Doc Rivers was rightfully panned for the move and deserved every nepotism joke. However, the former Duke guard has been okay in his role as backup point guard. One could even say he’s been a huge upgrade from Jordan Farmar.
