Clippers' Austin Rivers to be featured on 'NBA Inside Stuff'

Clippers guard Austin Rivers will be featured on 'NBA Inside Stuff' on Saturday

Clippers' reserve guard Austin Rivers will be featured on Saturday's episode of "NBA Inside Stuff" on NBA TV at 9 a.m. PDT.

The piece will give a glimpse into the NBA player's life, including a visit to the go-kart track with friends.

Rivers has been an instrumental part of the Clippers' playoff success. He's averaged 8.8 points on 46.6% shooting from the field and 39.4% shooting from beyond the three-point line in the team's 13 postseason games against the San Antonio Spurs and Houston Rockets.

Rivers started in Chris Paul's place in Games 1 and 2 of the Clippers' second-round playoff series against the Rockets as Paul recovered from a strained left hamstring. Then, in Paul's return in Game 3, Rivers exploded with a huge game, allowing Paul to ease back into action.

In Game 3, Rivers had 25 points on 10-for-13 shooting in 23 minutes off the bench to help lead the Clippers to a 124-99 victory.

The television segment will give a behind-the-scenes of Rivers' performance in the game.
