Doc Rivers Rumors

Funny thing about that: Snyder was hired by general manager Dennis Lindsey, for whom he’d worked when he was with the Toros, just coaching for the love of the game again. “How you handle disappointment really is something critical,” Brown said. “Things happen for a reason in this game.” So the Jazz trail Golden State 2-0 in their series as of Thursday night, and it’s hard to picture Utah coming out on top of this. But that won’t take away from how Snyder, now 50, has made his way. “With his preparation and intensity, you can feel that when you play them,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers, a friend of Snyder’s, said during the first round of the playoffs. “That’s from Quin. He also just runs great stuff. He understands who their team is.”
