National Basketball Association fines Clippers' Austin Rivers $25000 for inappropriate language toward a fan

Austin Rivers to Clippers Fan: 'Shut the F**k Up'

Rivers has taken on an increased workload with Paul out of the picture, and he is enjoying a career year with 13.8 points and 3.4 assists per game.

After losing Blake Griffin for two months to an MCL sprain on Monday night, the Clips got blown out at home by the Utah Jazz in their next game on Thursday night to drop to 8-12 on the season.

Los Angeles Clippers guard Austin Rivers has been finned $25,000 by the National Basketball Association for a verbal altercation with a fan during the Clippers' blowout loss to the Utah Jazz on Thursday night, according to Adrian Wojnarowksi of ESPN.

South Carolina State's Tyvoris Solomon revived after collapsing on bench
The focus quickly shifted to South Carolina State's bench area, however, as emergency medical personnel rushed to the area. State (7-2) scored the game's first 15 points, jumped to a 22-5 lead and never trailed in beating the Bulldogs (1-7).

If you listen very closely, it sounds like Rivers might be threatening to slap the fan, but that's just a guess. And then the second half he was talking about Steve Ballmer and Doc and DJ and saying demeaning stuff to my other teammates. I like fans who ride or die with you, and there's a lot of good ones here that show up to the game.

After the game, Rivers explained to reporters why he responded to the fan in the way that he did while adding a few more colorful words to describe situation.

Friday, during one of the team's media availability sessions, Rivers expressed contrition for dressing down the court-side fan. He added that he's "sorry for using profanity" but was "sticking up for my teammate, bottom line". "This is the message I want to say".
