Doc Rivers: verbal post-game row between Clippers and Warriors ‘much to do about nothing’

Doc Rivers on Sunday morning during a conference call was asked to comment on a verbal post-game row that took place between players from the Clippers and Warriors on the heels of the Clippers’ 126-121 Game 7 playoff victory at Staples Center.

The home and visitors locker rooms are close in proximity and apparently the Warriors didn’t like something they thought they heard coming from the Clippers’ locker room, such as an assistant coach saying how quiet it was in the Warriors’, according to a report on That led to a verbal confrontation in the tunnel outside the locker rooms.

“I really don’t know,” Rivers said, when asked about it. “I was sitting in my office with my family, and I heard about it.  From what I’ve heard, it was much to do about nothing. Unfortunately, the way the arena is built, from our training room that door opens. The other locker room is through that and I guess they can hear guys being excited. That was about it. From there I guess there were guys chirping in the hallway in between the two locker rooms. But no one even came and got me. I found out about it after the fact. That’s what I heard. Besides people talking loud at each other, nothing happened.”

There has been no love lost between these two teams.

According to the report on, which cited sources, security was called.
