(RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) Rivers was 356-208 through seven seasons with the Clippers, and was the most successful coach in team history.

    When Anthony Davis daggered in a buzzer-beater in the second game of the Conference Finals series, Lakers went up two games over the Nuggets. Well, Denver made a comeback in an exuberant fashion in Game 3 to halt the Lakers’ lead to 2-1. Jamal Murray was heated up and brought his team back in the series. Despite upsetting the Clippers in the second round of the Playoffs, few expected a fight from Nuggets against the season favorites.

    Will Kawhi Leonard allow the Clippers to trade Paul George this offseason? Despite entering the 2019-20 NBA season as the heavy favorites to bring home the Larry O’Brien Trophy, the Los Angeles Clippers still ended up suffering a second-round exit in the 2020 Playoffs. While they have yet to give up with their dream of winning their first NBA championship title, rumors are circulating that they are planning to make some roster changes this fall. In a recent article, Jovan Buha of The Athletic talked about the fate of Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, and the Clippers in the 2020 offseason. As most people are expecting, Buha revealed that the Clippers are still planning to continue building the team around Leonard,...
    After successfully acquiring Paul George and Kawhi Leonard last summer, the Los Angeles Clippers have managed to turn themselves from an average team to a legitimate title contender in the Western Conference. With two All-Stars and a quality supporting cast, most people considered the Clippers as the heavy favorites to bring home the Larry O’Brien Trophy in the 2019-20 NBA season. Unfortunately, they failed to live up to expectations. Aside from failing to capture their first NBA championship title, the Clippers were even unable to advance to the Western Conference Finals after being upset by the Denver Nuggets in the second round. After suffering a huge disappointment, the drama has started to build around George and the Clippers. Aside from...
    NBA : The sixteen qualified for the NBA playoffs are now known. The Portland Trail Blazers got the last ticket in the Western Conference on Saturday night by winning their play-off against the Memphis Grizzlies (126-122). A victory that sends them straight to the Los Angeles Lakers in the first round.

    Five days later, his parting words still scrape on the eardrum. Did Paul George really say that the Clippers’ 2019-20 season wasn’t a matter of “championship or bust?” Technically, he is correct. There is no record of either George or Kawhi Leonard promising that the Clippers would be this year’s champions. Practically, it is one of the all-time cop-outs, since it came a few minutes after Leonard and George combined to miss 28 of 38 shots at the end of the Clippers’ listless Game 7 farewell. The events of last summer certainly weren’t billed as the beginning of a two-year plan. The other Clippers did not spend nearly every day of that summer scrimmaging among themselves...
    The Los Angeles Clippers have some chemistry issues stemming from a Paul George altercation with Montrezl Harrell. The Los Angeles Clippers rolled into 2019-20 with championship aspirations, but Kawhi Leonard and Paul George swiftly put those aspirations on ice by underperforming during a playoff series against the Denver Nuggets in which LA blew a 3-1 advantage. Doc Rivers’ team never looked like a full-functioning unit that was really jelling, and Chris Haynes confirmed that everything wasn’t rosy behind closed doors during this series. Haynes confirmed that George and big man Montrezl Harrell, who won the 2019-20 Sixth Man of the Year Award, got into a shouting match after Game 2 in this series, with both star players hurling multiple expletives...

    With the debut of Kevin Durant and the return of Kyrie Irving, the Nets will be one of the NBA’s most talented teams next season. They need look no further than the Clippers for a stark reminder that talent on paper is no guarantee of titles on the court. Favored by many to win the NBA title, the Clippers dropped three straight chances to close out Denver and got upset in the Western Conference semifinals. They cited a lack of chemistry against a Nuggets team with more continuity. As a team facing significant roster turnover themselves, it could serve as a cautionary tale for Brooklyn. “We need to build some chemistry,” Kawhi Leonard said. “When you’ve played together for a...
    Kawhi Leonard and Paul George during a game in November 2019. Tony Gutierrez/AP Images The LA Clippers were eliminated from the NBA playoffs by the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday. The stunning second-round exit makes the 2019-20 season a failure for the Clippers, who were championship favorites after going all-in around Paul George and Kawhi Leonard. The Clippers traded almost all of their future draft picks for Leonard and George, and both can become free agents one year from now. The Clippers have few ways to improve their roster and will likely retain a talented team that also just came up well short of a championship. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

    The Clippers were stunned by the Nuggets in Game 7 on Tuesday night, and Twitter had a field day after Kawhi Leonard and Paul George disappeared late. The Los Angeles Clippers were sent packing by the Denver Nuggets in Tuesday night’s Game 7, completely one of the NBA’s most shocking choke jobs of all time and sending one of the title favorites home two rounds early.
    And then there were four. After a month and a half of competition inside the NBA’s “bubble,” the race for the 2020 championship is down to the Celtics, Heat, Lakers and Nuggets.  Los Angeles and Miami were able to cruise through the second round of the playoffs, but Boston and Denver had to go the full seven games in order to advance to the Eastern and Western Conference finals.

    By Brad Botkin (CBS SPORTS) – Five times in these playoffs the Denver Nuggets have trailed by double digits in an elimination game. All five games they came back to win. Viewed through the “one game at a time” prism, none of these comebacks were necessarily hard to believe. Denver is talent rich and overflowing with confidence. But in totality, you would expect the law of averages to eventually win out. You can’t go down 3-1 in consecutive series and come back to win them both, can you? That’s literally never happened in the 74-year history of the NBA. Until now. Nikola Jokic of the Denver Nuggets drives the ball against JaMychal Green #4 of the LA Clippers and Paul...

Currently, the Clippers hold a 3-1 lead over the Denver Nuggets, while the Lakers are hoping to accomplish the same in Game 4 vs the Rockets.
