Doc Rivers is reinforcing a playoff mentality during the regular season.

USA TODAY Sports

Per Sporting News,

While last year, the Clippers seemed to be playing for the regular season, Rivers vowed to get the team focused on the playoffs from Tuesday's first practice.

"You play the regular season to get ready for the postseason," Rivers said. "You want to win every game, obviously. But I look at the regular season as preparation for the playoffs. So every practice we have during the regular season is a playoff practice. And we name it that, we talk about that. We have to execute better, offensively and defensively, and the only way you do that is you have playoff focus in October in your practices, and throughout the year. That's what we are going to do."
