Tiger Fighting, October 22 News Today, Clippers owner Steve Ballmer was interviewed by reporters at the press conference where Tyron Lue became the head coach and talked about the reasons for his coaching change.
"I didn't watch all the games, but I watched one of our playoffs and several qualifying matches in the quarter-finals. I feel that we were not at our best during the quarter-finals. The results of our season have disappointed me very much. …My personality is that we only care about winning. We have not done what we should have done, and we have not reached the goals we set for ourselves. After taking a breath and releasing the pressure, we must understand what we need to do."
In this season's playoffs, the Clippers' 3-1 lead in the semifinals was reversed by the Nuggets and missed the Western Conference Finals.
