Doc Rivers: Now is not the time to judge L.A. Clippers season

first_imgCoach Doc Rivers’ Los Angeles Clippers on Friday night clinched a playoff spot for a franchise-record fourth consecutive season with a 119-98 victory at Philadelphia. A reporter wanted to know from Rivers what in his mind would be a real accomplishment for his team.Would it be a trip to the Western Conference finals for the first time in club history? Or …“We’ll figure that out at the end,” was Rivers’ response. “Right now, we just want to play. We respect our conference. Us and all the other seven teams that get in all want to win it.“If you don’t win it, then you have to figure out what an accomplished season is.” With that said, all Rivers is currently concerned with is his team’s continued improvement.“Just getting better,” said Rivers, whose team will next play at 3 p.m. today at Boston (on Prime Ticket). “Now it’s all about our actions on offense and defense. The second and third options have been our focus now for about two weeks.“In the playoffs, you don’t get your first option and if you do, it’s rare. You have to be able to run stuff with continuity no matter what the defense is doing. So that’s all we’ve been talking about.”The Clippers (48-25) have won six consecutive games. Getting consistent One of the knocks on the Clippers this season is that they have been inconsistent, whether from game-to-game or minute-to-minute. Chris Paul likes what he’s seeing in that department.“Yes, we talk about it all the time,” he said. “We’re trying to be more consistent, find the plays that we like, and most of all, be more consistent on defense.”Praise from 76ersPhiladelphia coach Brett Brown came away from Friday’s game very impressed by the Clippers, who also routed his team 127-91 on Jan. 3 at Staples Center.“They’re one of those teams that are rare,” Brown said. “They can post Blake (Griffin), throw lobs to DeAndre (Jordan), they can bring (J.J.) Redick off the pin-down and they have the killer in pick-and-rolls with Chris Paul.“So tonight was a great lesson and a great experience to play against a real team that is a few weeks away from going into the playoffs.”This and thatThe Celtics (32-40) will enter this game in eighth place in the Eastern Conference standings, good enough for the final playoff spot in the East. But the Brooklyn Nets were just a half-game back at 31-40, so Boston has plenty for which to play. … Point guard Isaiah Thomas has averaged 19.7 points and 5.0 assists since coming to the Celtics from Phoenix in mid-February. He recently missed eight games with back issues, but returned two games ago. … Small forward Jeff Green is averaging 15.1 points for Boston. … The Clippers defeated Boston 102-93 on Jan. 19 at Staples Center. … Clippers sixth-man Jamal Crawford (calf) has missed the past 12 games. center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
