The Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Clippers have developed a rivalry over the last few years but it was sparked again this week due to comments by Doc Rivers. The head coach of the Clippers said the Warriors were “lucky” to avoid playing L.A. or the San Antonio Spurs on their road to the 2015 NBA Championship.
Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson responded with daggers.
“I wanted to play the Clippers last year, but they couldn’t handle their business. If we got lucky, look at our record against them last year. I’m pretty sure we smacked them. Didn’t they lose to the Rockets? Exactly. So haha. That just makes me laugh. That’s funny. Weren’t they up 3-1 too? Yeah, tell them I said that. That’s funny. That’s funny.
Destruction. Hopefully the teams bring that intensity to the floor when they meet.
