"Though it was a disappointing ending to our season ... I know what this team is capable of accomplishing."

The Clippers were viewed as massive disappointments in the NBA playoffs due to the collapse against the Nuggets.

The final three setbacks were ugly as Los Angeles led by as many as 16, 19 and 12 points, respectively, in the losses.

The Clippers were forecasted to contend for the NBA title after landing All-Stars Kawhi Leonard and Paul George in the summer of 2019.

But the team was reportedly dealing with chemistry issues during their postseason stay at the "bubble" near Orlando. Lou Williams publicly cited the chemistry as an issue after the Game 7 loss to the Nuggets.

The Clippers had a 49-23 regular-season record and earned the No. 2 seed in the West.

Rivers, who turns 59 on Oct. 13, has a 943-681 record in 21 seasons as an NBA coach. The victories rank 11th all-time. He also won the 2008 NBA title with the Boston Celtics.

Rivers compiled a 356-208 mark in seven seasons with the Clippers. The team made six playoff appearances.

Rivers began his coaching career with the Orlando Magic (1999-2004) before his stints with the Celtics (2004-13) and Clippers.

Saying Rivers merely guided the Clippers through the Donald Sterling scandal in 2014 - at the end of only his first season in Los Angeles - would be a massive understatement.
