Los Angeles Clippers head coach Doc Rivers reportedly "directed his ire" at Clips big man Montrezl Harrell numerous times in the middle of an animated team meeting before a Jan. 5 game against the New York Knicks, per Jovan Buha and Sam Amick of The Athletic.
Those actions were in direct response to Harrell's candid comments regarding the state of the Clippers following a 140-114 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies the day before, per Tomer Azarly of Clutch Points:
Buha and Amick wrote of Rivers' remarks: "The gist of the expletive-laden message had been sent loud and clear: Keep your frustrations internal.
The 31-14 Clippers beat the Knicks 135-132 after Rivers' comments and currently sit third in the Western Conference.
