The Los Angeles Clippers started the NBA season with four straight wins. Afterwards, their world came crashing down. As the team has went 1-10 since. The Clippers has beaten teams like the Lakers, Suns, Jazz, and Mavericks. With the only team, they beat with a winning record has been the Portland Trailblazers. With all that said. The Clippers now lose their 8th straight game to a team, that was on a 6 game losing streak themselves.
If we consider all the failure that the Clippers has had in the past. One can’t help to wonder is it time for them to say goodbye to head coach Doc Rivers. Los Angeles has already relieved Rivers as the team’s president. But now I think it’s time for them to take it a step further.
