Doc Rivers’ team has been spiraling in the wrong direction lately, but the Clippers coach was firm in making this proclamation after L.A. dropped a 118-109 game to the Toronto Raptors on Monday night at the Air Canada Centre:
“I swear to everyone the sky is not falling,” Rivers said.
But it sure has been dark around the Clippers, and it stayed that way despite Blake Griffin producing a triple-double.
The Clippers have lost the first two games on this five-game trip and have lost seven of their last nine games.
Their defense has been basically nonexistent.
Their offense has been spotty at times.
Their energy level wanes at times.
