Clippers coach Doc Rivers fined $25K for Game 5 postgame comments Published: May 15, 2014

Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers was fined $25,000 by the NBA on Thursday for his comments following Game 5 of the Thunder-Clippers Western Conference semifinals series.

Rivers was critical of the officiating in the Clippers' 105-104 loss. He followed the loss with a postgame press conference rant in which he said the Clippers "got robbed" and that officials "got the call wrong" on a play in which the ball went out of bounds off of Thunder guard Reggie Jackson in the closing seconds.

On Wednesday, former NBA executive Stu Jackson said on an podcast that the officials made the right decision in Game 5.
