The LA Clippers broke franchise records in their 154-111 win. Here’s what we loved.

Over the past few games, I have sat here and tried to limit my complaints to just three things that the LA Clippers could fix. I am extremely glad to say though last night there was nothing negative I could really say. The LA Clippers set multiple franchise records as they cruised to a 154-111 win, the biggest of which was scoring both the most points in postseason and regular-season history.

Since last night was such a resounding success, let’s focus on three of the things fans should love about the victory.

1. Doc Rivers’ postgame speech

This first (and most important) thing didn’t happen during the game but after. It honestly has nothing to even do with the game. That doesn’t matter though as it’s something everyone needs to see.

Please, please, please take the three minutes to watch his speech if you have not. Hell, sit there and watch it again if you have.

That speech left everyone speechless and showed why Doc Rivers is so respected around the league. After the shooting of Jacob Blake, everyone has looked to the NBA and how they will respond after being such great advocates for social justice. Rivers’ impassioned speech and call for justice is exactly what we need out of these men.

Rivers’ speech had extra meaning, coming from the son of a police officer for 30 years. Back in July, Shaun Powell of wrote on Rivers and his father and what he would think of the protests happening across the country. Make sure to take the time to read that too.
