LOS ANGELES — Luka Doncic impressed once again scoring 32 and leading the Mavericks. DeAndre Jordan got a video tribute and a standing ovation in his return to Staples Center. The Clippers snapped a four-game losing streak thanks to the return of Lou Williams and his play down the stretch, plus Danilo Gallinari‘s 32 points.
None of that was the highlight of the game, this was:
“I’m hurting,” Doc Rivers said after the game, only half joking. “When I went down the first thing I thought was ‘oh my god, I just tore my ACL for the second time, and this time I’m coaching.’ I’m not even sure how you do that. The doctor said I didn’t, my body said I did, so we’ll find out tomorrow.”
“I thought he would be out 2-4 weeks,” Jordan said with a smile.
With the Clippers snapping a four-game losing streak, his knee is going to hurt a little less tonight.
