The Los Angeles Clippers are not happy about losing to the Utah Jazz in Game 1 on Saturday at home. Chris Paul lost his mind after Joe Johnson hit the game-winner.

So, too, was LA coach Doc Rivers upset when a reporter asked him a question about the Clippers’ final possession of the game.

During media availability after the game, a reporter asked Rivers if Paul should have held the ball instead of scoring and tying the game on a drive with 13 seconds left. That time left over was the allowance needed for Johnson’s game-winner.

Rivers responded:

If you have the chance, you score. No matter what.

Utah beat LA, 97-95. The Jazz lead the series, 1-0. Game 2 is in LA on Tuesday, April 18th at 7:30 PM PST on TNT.
