Los Angeles Clippers decided to rest several key players, including Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, during the final two games of the season.
Several peers reacted negatively to the Clippers decision, however head coach Ty Lue does not seem to care as his players are healthy ahead of the opening playoff round.
(via Shane Young of Forbes):
“I don’t give a damn what anybody else thinks,” he told reporters Tuesday. “And I don’t listen to [criticism] anyway. We finally got everyone healthy.”
The Clippers finished as the No. 4 seed in the Western Conference and will face the No. 5 Dallas Mavericks in the first round of the playoffs starting Saturday.
