Several Los Angeles Clippers players asked out of the fourth quarter of their game 7 loss to the Denver Nuggets due to fatigue, sources told Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated.


Players reportedly struggled to play more than three minutes at a time.


The Clippers were outscored 50-33 in their 104-89 loss in the elimination game.

Didn't they sit their guys during the regular season more than any other team to condition them for this long playoff run. Also, kind of makes sense when some players would rather be sneaking out of the bubble to visit strip clubs than focus on getting ready for the championship. That team definitely did not have their priorities straight.

I'd have thought this to be one of the tougher teams ever. What a failure. I hope I'm still underrating the Nuggets.

No travel, not even a bus ride after the game, and they are not rested? That's just weak.

These are the so-called “dogs” everyone was raving about that didn’t need practice or to even win during the regular season to get a chip :noway:
