Doc Rivers postgame speech after the historic comeback: “We’re roaches, they can’t kill us”

The Los Angeles Clippers had one of the most remarkable wins in the franchise history against the defending champions Golden State Warriors.  At first, It seemed like Warriors will run away with another win since they were up by 31 points in the middle of the third quarter.

The Warriors were hitting every possible shot and they even made nine of them in a row. The Clippers were resilient and never gave up which resulted in a historic achievement. Several players showed heart and contributed to capturing a much-needed win before they hit the home court.

After the game, Doc Rivers gave a very emotional speech in which he described his team to roaches, in a very positive manner describing their resilient mentality.

Listen. Down 28. We were down 28 to Boston. We were down how much today? What did I say? We are roaches, you can’t kill us. You can’t kill us. Aye, way to hang in there, Shai big play. You tracked, you throw it, Sham made a three. Everybody that came in. Jamychal going to five, playing the game everybody. That’s how you hang in the game men, we’re going nowhere.  Show it. Let’s go.
