Roberts drew heat for the loss that saw the Dodgers blow a 3-1 seventh-inning lead.

The rankings are determined by what they call a "comeback score" for each series a team has lost, which is basically the losing team's peak win probability in that game.

Roberts has an outstanding 393-256 record over four seasons as the Dodgers' skipper, a resume that includes two National League pennants, four consecutive NL West titles, and a 106-56 regular season mark in 2019 that ranks as the winningest season in the Dodgers' 136-year history.

Before Thursday night's game against the Denver Nuggets, Rivers closed his pregame interview with his take on the Dodgers situation.

It was the flawless loss to epitomize a postseason series that was wildly disappointing.

"If the blame falls on me, I've got no problem with it", Roberts, 47, said after the Game 5 loss. "I really like him".

"I don't think I have felt worse for one single guy than Kershaw". And to see that, man, I tell you, that's when you really appreciate some of these guys. "They really put it all on the line, they go to risk, they know it could go bad; and when it does, it does".

Rivers continued on to say that the performance was a reminder of the lengths to which players will go for their teams. "Like, I really like him", Rivers said. "I was cheering for them man, it was really a tough one".
