Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers didn't hold his tongue after the Thunder's 105-104 win in Game 5 Tuesday night.
Rivers said the Clippers were robbed in the final seconds of the game, pointing to a critical call in the closing seconds that gave possession back to the Thunder.
"I already had the play, so the play was drawn up for our guys so we were fine there," Rivers said. "My thinking was I was (expletive). I don’t think that’s working the officials, that’s being honest with the officials. I love them. I think all three of those officials are terrific officials, but on that call they got it wrong. That’s a game-defining and possibly series-defining call, and that ain’t right.
"Everybody knows it was our ball," Rivers continued. "I think the bottom line is they thought it was a foul and they made up for it. In my opinion, let’s take away replay. Let’s take away the replay system because that’s our ball, we win the game and we got robbed because of that call."
