Doc Rivers fined

NEW YORK (AP) — Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers was fined $15,000 by the NBA for verbally abusing a game official and failing to leaving the court in a timely manner after his ejection.

The incident happened with 18.6 remaining in the first overtime of the Clippers’ 127-122 double-overtime loss at Brooklyn on Tuesday night.

Rivers was given a technical foul for crossing over midcourt, then another and ejected.

The Clippers trailed by two late in the first OT and fouled Sean Kilpatrick in the backcourt after he received the inbounds pass. Rivers appeared to think Kilpatrick swung his elbows and should have been called for the foul.
