The Los Angeles Clippers went into Cleveland last night with a plan of snapping the Cavaliers 11-game winning streak.
The Cavaliers had other plans.
Leading by 31 points after three quarters, all of the starters rested in the fourth. The final 105-94 is a lot closer than the game was. Deadspin has a nice recap of all the technical and flagrant fouls the Clippers picked up, as well as Matt Barnes’ ejection and their collective crying about the referees post-game.
They were so bad at one point, head coach Doc Rivers fist bumped a young man sitting courtside with, presumably, his father.
“We should have gave you a better game today. We’ll make it up to you, alright?”
I’m sure this kid is in that awkward stage where he doesn’t know what team he likes. At one point I liked the Miami Hurricanes and Dallas Cowboys.
Oh to be young and stupid.
I just wish Doc asked him who the starting five were. That would have been more entertaining than whatever the hell the Clippers were doing.
