The NBA has decided to fine Clippers guard $25,000. It was for his outburst towards a fan in LA’s 126-107 loss Thursday night at the Staples Center.

Rivers claimed to be sticking up for a teammate:

“I definitely shouldn’t have said anthing,” Rivers went on to say, “This is the message I want to say. I’m sorry for using profanity, but I was sticking up for my teammate, bottom line.”

Teammate DeAndre Jordan had to hold Rivers back.
