    The NBA fined Clippers head coach Doc Rivers $25,000 on Thursday for publicly criticizing the officiating in Los Angeles' 105-104 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder earlier this week.
    Rivers was livid after the game, saying the Clippers were ''robbed.'' The Clippers believed the Thunder's Reggie Jackson had knocked the ball out of bounds with 11.3 seconds remaining, but officials ruled it Oklahoma City ball. After going to replay, the call stood, and the Thunder rallied to win the game.
