Clippers coach Doc Rivers would rest players down the season's stretch run


(3/24/2015) Clippers coach Doc Rivers recently indicated he would consider resting his key players during the 11 remaining regular-season games if he believes it will help during the playoffs, reports the L.A. Daily News.

Point guard Chris Paul has never played in all 82 games but has been in 71 so far this season. Paul will be 30 in May and Rivers said if a game off is best for the team's quarterback, then so be it.

“The 82 thing is an individual thing,” Rivers said of Paul’s goal to play all 82 games. “That does nothing for our team. If resting him at some point we feel is the best thing for him, then he’s going to have to take that hit.”

Starting small forward Matt Barnes is 35. Blake Griffin is five games into a return after being out five weeks with an elbow injury.

DeAndre Jordan has played in 311 consecutive regular-season games, the longest active streak in the league.

The Clippers currently hold the fifth spot in the Western Conference.
