The Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Clippers absolutely hate each other. The rivalry has existed over the last few years but reached a new level after Doc Rivers claimed the Warriors were lucky to win the 2015 NBA Championship. Golden State players were not happy about this and made snarky comments back.
Things intensified in Tuesday’s preseason games between the two teams. The Clippers got the victory in the meaningless game but the main story was the words by Shaun Livingston criticizing the play of Blake Griffin.
Livingston on Blake Griffin:
“He’s going with all these antics; just play. He’s out here wrapping me up, putting elbows to my forehead. Ok. I understand. Don’t get me wrong. They want to beat us.
I’ve got 12 years in this thing, and you’re out here trying to throw elbows at me and wrap me up and do all that. That makes no sense to me. Just play and you don’t have to do all of that. You’re big enough and strong enough that you can just box me out without doing all of that.”
The regular season games between the two teams should be amazing.
