Clippers’ Austin Rivers to L.A. fan: ‘Shut the f— up’


Frustrating times for the Clippers.

Even a three-game win streak didn’t alleviate the pain of the nine-game losing streak that preceded it, because the “turnaround” came against three bad teams, and Blake Griffin got hurt during it.

With L.A. on its way to a 126-107 home loss to the Jazz last night, Austin Rivers confronted a courtside fan. The Clippers guard clearly told the fan to “shut the f— up.”

No matter how the fan provoked him, Rivers will probably get fined. The NBA has no tolerance for players treating fans like that getting caught on video treating fans like that.
