Doc Rivers still haunted by Clippers’ bad losses

first_imgIt was a valid question with the Clippers are playing better than they were a month ago when they were waxed by the team that took them to seven games in the first round of last season’s Western Conference playoffs.“No, no, that one feels like yesterday, as far as I’m concerned,” said Rivers, whose team will host the New Orleans Pelicans at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Staples Center.Why? Rivers was asked.“Because we got beat pretty bad and those don’t go away,” he said. “The wins go away quickly.”Even going 6-1 on the recent road trip couldn’t wipe away the memory of that nightmare. “No, the wins go away, but the losses don’t go away,” Rivers reiterated. “Memphis and Golden State.”Apparently, the 107-91 loss Nov. 23 at Memphis — the only loss on that seven-game road trip — also haunts Rivers. The 15-3 Grizzlies are second in the Western Conference behind Golden State (15-2). The Clippers (13-5) — winners of six consecutive games and eight of nine — are tied with San Antonio for sixth.The Clippers will get a chance for revenge when they host Golden State on Christmas night at Staples Center. The Clippers will have to wait until Feb. 23 to get back at Memphis, which that night will visit Staples Center.Rivers: O’Quinn’s flagrant 2 foul warrantedKyle O’Quinn of the Orlando Magic was charged with a flagrant 2 foul on Blake Griffin on Wednesday night when O’Quinn raked Griffin hard across the face as Griffin was charging to the basket in the second quarter.Griffin, who hit the deck, said although he took a good shot to the face, he was surprised O’Quinn was assessed the flagrant 2 and ejected.Rivers thought it was the right call.“That’s a flagrant 2 in this generation,” he said. “I don’t think he was trying to hurt Blake or anything like that. It was a hard foul, and the way the game’s called now, it has to be a flagrant 2.”Orlando’s Channing Frye chimes inWhen O’Quinn was called for the foul on Griffin, the Magic had whittled a 15-point first-quarter deficit down to 38-35. The Clippers went on an 8-2 run on the heels of the incident and Orlando never recovered.With O’Quinn gone, the Magic were missing their starting center — Nikola Vucevic was out with back spasms — and their backup. To Orlando power forward Channing Frye, that was too much to overcome.“We know Kyle and we know that there was not anything malicious about that,” Frye said. “They (O’Quinn and Griffin) are 250-pound men. These are two gigantic oxen going up. But that’s the way it went, and I think emotionally we just felt kind of let down from that and they took advantage of us.”This and thatRivers will be coaching against his son, Austin, when the Pelicans (8-8) come to town Saturday. Austin Rivers, a 22-year-old shooting guard in his third season, is averaging 6.6 points while averaging 21.8 minutes off the bench. … Clippers point guard Chris Paul is shooting 53.3 percent from the field, 42.6 percent from 3-point range — both career-highs.
