Clippers coach Doc Rivers: Video of altercation between sheriff and Masai Ujiri ‘very hurtful to watch’

first_img Game 4 photos: Luka Doncic, Mavs shock Clippers in overtime Clippers’ Paul George: ‘If I make shots, this series could be a little different’ For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory Mavs coach Rick Carlisle — who opened his pregame videoconference with the media by sharing some history of the anniversary of Nat Turner’s Rebellion, which began Aug. 21 1831 — said he found the footage of the sheriff deputy’s treatment of Ujiri “terrible.”“All the guy wants to do is get with his team to celebrate a championship,” Carlisle said. “It’s a visible, modern-day example of racial injustice and it’s appalling.”BEVERLEY OUT AGAINThe Clippers were forced to go forth without Patrick Beverley again on Friday, as the defensive pest was sidelined for the second consecutive game with a left calf strain — the same injury that kept him out of five of his team’s bubble seeding games.Without him on the floor, the Clippers are 11-11 this season. With him, they’re 39-13.“He’s getting better, I guess, would be the best way to phrase it,” said Rivers, who typically isn’t specific about players’ injuries.This season, the 6-foot-1 guard is averaging 7.9 points, 3.6 assists, 5.2 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game. He’s also shooting 53.3% from 3-point range in the 11 games he’s played since the All-Star break.Second-year shooting guard Landry Shamet got the start in Beverley’s place Friday.Related Articles The lawsuit Strickland filed in February alleged that Ujiri assaulted him and, as a result, that Strickland “suffered injury to his body, health, strength, activity and person, all of which have caused and continue to cause Plaintiff great mental, emotional, psychological, physical, and nervous pain and suffering.”But Ujiri’s countersuit — which includes the Raptors, the NBA and Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment as plaintiffs — claims that Strickland falsified the encounter and that he attempted to portray Ujiri as “the initial aggressor,” calling Strickland’s account “a complete fabrication.”Rivers suggested that there’s even more to the video that backs up Ujiri’s claim.“If you’ve seen the whole video, which I don’t think a lot of people have seen yet, the cop was nice, nice, nice and then here comes this one Black man with a suit,” Rivers said. “It’s just really sad. Winning a title is so emotional — I don’t think people who aren’t in (the league) can ever understand it, and to have that taken away, it’s just really sad.” What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 Clippers coach Doc Rivers said that even before it was released publicly this week, he’d seen the video footage showing the altercation between Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri and a San Francisco-area sheriff’s deputy after the clinching moment of last season’s NBA Finals.“Masai and I are very close,” Rivers said, on Zoom, before the Clippers faced the Dallas Mavericks in Game 3 of their Western Conference first-round playoffs series Friday in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.“He had shared the video with me. It was just sad to see. It was actually very hurtful to watch that video,” the 21st-year coach continued. “A man is at the pinnacle of his career at that moment, you know, walking out on the floor to celebrate with his team. They had just won the NBA championship and he had to be reminded, once again, what his color was. And it’s just so sad.”Also Tuesday, Ujiri reportedly countersued the deputy, Alan Strickland, who is shown on the video shoving the Raptors official and telling him to “back the f— up” as Ujiri attempted to gain access to the court.
