Despite not making it to the conference finals like everyone predicted this year…doc rivers left the clippers as the franchise’s most successful coach. In seven seasons, Doc led the clippers to a record of 356-208, winning 63% of their regular-season games – the fifth-best record in the NBA.

The Minnesota Vikings reported having no positive test results, they were able to resume practice and prepare for their matchup against the Texans this Sunday. However, the Titans reported to having five players and 6 staff test positive for coronavirus, so they are still shut down.
