NBA Fines Clippers Head Coach Doc Rivers

Clippers head coach Doc Rivers was fined $15,000 for directing verbal abuse towards a game official and not leaving the court in a timely manner after his ejection, the NBA announced on Thursday.

The incident occurred with 18.6 seconds remaining in the first overtime of the Clippers’ 127-122 double-overtime loss to the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday.

The Clippers (14-5) have lost three games in a row and trail the Warriors (16-2) by 2.5 games for the top spot in the Western Conference.

The two teams square off for the first time next Wednesday in Los Angeles.
