Doc Rivers is on a roll.
Cayleigh Griffin of AT&T SportsNet Southwest:
Doc Rivers was asked if there’s any animosity between these two groups..
He said, “No. just me and Austin.”

In the previous Clippers-Rockets game, Austin egged on referees to call a technical foul on Doc. That was a funny moment.
But like with Doc’s LeBron joke, there’s also some truth behind this one. Doc and Austin aren’t especially close. While Austin was growing up, Doc was off coaching.
They want to go at each other. And Doc and Austin are definitely part of that dynamic.
