Have Rivers’ Clippers Grown Enough to Defeat Thunder?

The Los Angeles Clippers hired coach Doc Rivers to help take the team to the next level…and here they are. Having already navigated through the news of their owner Donald Sterling making egregious racist remarks and still winning a hard-fought seven-game series against the Golden State Warriors, River’s Clippers face a tough test against projected MVP-winner Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder. There’s no denying that the Clippers grew through adversity during that conflicted first-round series, but OKC with KD and Russell Westbrook pose an entirely different challenge. Have the Clippers grown enough to silence the Thunder? Fans will find out in what looks to be the most intriguing playoff semifinal matchup this year. (Photo: Stephen Dunn/Getty Images)
