Austin Rivers fined 25K for verbal altercation with fan

Los Angeles Clippers guard Austin Rivers has been fined $25,000 after verbally abusing a fan during his team's defeat to the Utah Jazz, the National Basketball Association said Saturday.

Rivers apologized for his actions and said that he was only taking up for Clippers teammate DeAndre Jordan, whom he said was being trash-talked about. And toward the end of the fourth the quarter, a clearly ticked off Rivers allowed his frustration to boil over, as he got into a heated confrontation with some home fans. "He was talking shit about the team, but he was cheering the first half".

However, the onus is also on the fan for getting him riled up in the first place with whatever it was they said. And then the second half he was talking about Steve Ballmer and Doc and DJ and saying demeaning stuff to my other teammates.

I think all of you lovely folks should just go ahead and check out what Gomez chose to wear to accept quite the honor. I handle things in a healthy way. "I love you so much sis".

"He was talking sh** about the team, not even me".

Yikes. We hate to hear about our fans acting fake during games, and this is especially weird behavior for a fan who paid to sit courtside.

The next day, Rivers apologized to the fans via this Twitter page.

What you can do if your local RBS is closing

Rivers and the Clippers lost 126-107 to the Jazz. No, probably not because I wouldn't want to get fined.

Rivers had arguably one of his best games of the season scoring 25 points shooting 9 for 16 and giving the Clippers six assists.

That meant checking down when facing pressure instead of pushing the envelope, trying to get an explosive play downfield. The Packers grinded out a win to stay in the playoff race, though they trail NFC North leader Minnesota by four games.
