Several players of the Los Angeles Clippers questioned the decisions of head coach Doc Rivers during the series against the Denver Nuggets.

The Clippers dropped a 3-1 lead and saw the Nuggets eliminate them (3-4) and advance to the Western Conference Finals.

“Several players had underwhelming postseason performances. Head coach Doc Rivers had several strategic decisions that left players scratching their heads, such as the decision not to ride a bigger lineup against Nikola Jokic, choosing rotations that did not prioritize more minutes for JaMychal Green and various defensive adjustments.

The team also never came together in terms of chemistry or camaraderie inside the bubble. These are all things Rivers and the Clippers will sift through for the entire offseason and into an unknown start date to next season,” Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
