Prior to Wednesday night’s 115-98 beatdown at the hands of the visiting Golden State Warriors, LA Clippers head coach Doc Rivers was asked about the Dubs being a “super team”, and he pointed out that the present-day Dubs “only” have a single championship ring.
Doc Rivers on the Warriors being a ‘super team’: “They’ve only won one title, by the way.”

It was the Warriors’ seventh consecutive win against the Clips.
The Clippers have lost five of their last seven games, and had their morale snatched away early in this one.
Per the LA Times:
“I really thought we never got our spirit back after the beginning,” Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said. “Thank God for that second group. But other than that, it wasn’t much of a game.”
But Draymond Green pulled his weight, producing 22 points, five rebounds and four assists. Klay Thompson followed up his 60-point explosion from Monday night with 24 points. And Stephen Curry was solid, scoring 19 points, handing out six assists, grabbing four rebounds and picking up seven steals.
“We had early turnovers,” (Chris) Paul said. “Me getting an early tech like that, you can’t do that in a game like that. But like I said, we gave them a lot of baskets. A team like that that moves the ball as well as they do and shoot it as well as they do, you can’t give them points. We were playing transition defense all night.”
