Following Los Angeles' 112-108 loss to the Warriors on Wednesday night, the Clippers' official Twitter account sent out the following tweet:
"Final from Oakland ... GSW 112 LAC 108 #didntloseby50"
The hashtag was in reference to the fact the Grizzlies lost to the Warriors 119-69 two nights prior.
On Friday morning, Doc Rivers let his feelings be known.
"Classless and tasteless," Rivers said to Clippers beat writer Dan Woike of the Orange County Register.
The Clippers deleted the tweet sometime after 2pm on Thursday afternoon.
On Thursday morning, several members of the Grizzlies voiced their opinions on the tweet:
Courtney Lee: “It’s childish. We took our L and we kept it moving, right? We lost by 50. We didn’t cry over it, and went on to the next one. Apparently, they’re holding on to it. That’s what they got to do to overshadow their loss. Last time I heard, a loss is a loss. But that’s what they do over there.”
Tony Allen: “You ever seen the movie 'White Men Can’t Jump'? It’s like those brothers would rather look good in a loss and look bad in a win. Whoever is in charge of their Twitter should be fired. I’ve never seen anybody broadcast losing. Who’s proud of losing -- whether it’s by one, two three or 50? Enough said.”
Zach Randolph: “I take it with a grain of salt. I ain’t with all that talking and Instagraming and tweeting and bluffing. You got to prove it on the court.”
Coach Dave Joerger: “I don’t do Twitter.”
Doc called #didntloseby50 tweet classless and tasteless.
