After beating the San Antonio Spurs in Game 7, it appeared the Los Angeles Clippers were well on their way to the Western Conference Finals. Instead, the team dropped a 3-1 series lead and fell to the Houston Rockets in seven games.

Doc Rivers, who coached the Boston Celtics to one NBA championship in 2008 and another NBA Finals appearance in 2010, felt heartbreak once again and delivered a memorable speech to his Clippers after the loss. If the team can keep its Big 3 together, and upgrade the wing position, the Clippers could be primed for yet another run next season.
