“The coaches here are amazing,” he told Basketball Insiders. “They give you a lot of confidence.” The contrast was stark to his previous home. “In New Orleans, it was a tough place for me, just because the coach [Monty Williams], he didn’t really give me a shot, you know what I mean? Even if I was playing, if I screwed up one time or anything like that, he would just take me right out. Here, Coach [Snyder], he’ll come to you… it’s just a different type of coaching. More player-friendly, for sure.”
He had nine points and continued to play solid defense in a Clippers win over New Orleans on Thursday night. “I talked to Monty and he was like, ‘Man, I made a lot of mistakes with you.’ I was like, ‘Man, I made a lot of mistakes too.’ We both did,” Rivers said. “And then when he said, ‘I used to be so hard on you when you made mistakes. I didn’t give you any leeway.’ He was like, ‘Don’t ever let anyone change your game.’ And when he said that a week ago, it just clicked for me. I don’t know what it was.”
