VIDEO: Clippers’ Doc Rivers takes hilarious jab at Warriors for current struggles
For a lot of younger fans, it may be a strange sight to see the Golden State Warriors struggling. However, for Los Angeles Clippers head coach Doc Rivers, seeing the Dubs fall to the bottom of the league seems pretty normal.
With the Clippers set to take on the Warriors Friday night, Rivers was asked about the Dubs’ current struggles. The veteran head coach joked that he has been in the league for a while so seeing Golden State struggle was nothing new for him.

The Warriors’ struggles this season have been well documented. With the departure of Kevin Durant and injuries to Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, Golden State has stumbled to a conference-last 9-30 record on the season.
Entering Friday’s showdown, Steve Kerr’s team have also lost six in a row.
The Clippers, on the other hand, have emerged as one of the best teams in the entire NBA. With the offseason additions of Paul George and Kawhi Leonard, Los Angeles has impressed with a 26-12 that is third place in the West.
In fact, Doc Rivers and Co. have won three of their last four games — with their only loss against a rising Memphis Grizzlies squad.
