Surprise, surprise, Doc Rivers has been fined $25,000 by the NBA today for his comments following the Clippers Game 5 loss to the Thunder. Rivers criticized the officiating, and the NBA replay system as a whole, in his postgame comments following his team's 105-104 loss on Tuesday, but commissioner Adam Silver has clearly had the last word.
Doc's specific criticism was of a crucial play in the dying moments of the game involving a missed foul call on Matt Barnes, and a review that upheld it was Thunder possession, even though the Clippers appeared to touch the ball last. Rivers seemed to intimate that since the refs missed the foul on Barnes, they made up for it by giving possession to Oklahoma City in the final seconds.
Check out the play below, and you be the judge.
The Thunder try to finish off the Clippers in Game 6 tonight in Los Angeles at 10:30 p.m. Eastern on ESPN .
