Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers spoke with reporters on Monday regarding the racist comments allegedly made by team owner Donald Sterling, saying that he does believe it was Sterling's voice on those tapes and that he passed on an opportunity to speak with the owner regarding the comments, according to USA Today's Sam Amick.

Rivers cancelled the team's scheduled practice for Monday after a 21-point loss on the road in Game 4 of their series with the Golden State Warriors the previous day, telling reporters that his players "needed to breathe."

The Clippers signed Rivers to a three-year, $21 million contract before the season, but when asked about his plans to continue coaching the team after this season, Rivers said he would "wait and see" before making any decisions about his future.
