Clippers coach Doc Rivers fined $15000 by NBA

"What the league is going to fall back on, 'He crossed the halfcourt.' You'll see tomorrow that's what they're going to say and we're all going to know that that's not the real reason". "But, I'm all right with it, honestly, because I think you deserve it when you do that". He wasn't that accurate, shooting 14-for-34, but he did knock down four 3-pointers to take his eFG over 50%, and was incredible on the boards with 14 rebounds.

Behind Sean Kilpatrick's career high 38 points and 14 rebounds, the Nets topped the Clippers 127-122 in double overtime.

"If you're going to come out flat, that's how it's going to happen, especially in the NBA", Kilpatrick said. Despite their horrid 0-8 start you wonder if this team could climb back into the playoff race in the West.

BUCKS SURPRISE CAVS: After building a big third-quarter lead against the defending National Basketball Association champions, the Milwaukee Bucks poured it on in the fourth. Milwaukee took a 90-78 lead into the fourth quarter, led by Antetokounmpo's 11 points in the third, and never looked back. We started to share the ball. We thought we were a lot better than we really are. "If not, it's going to be a long season". "It doesn't matter for me". My goodness. But if we're being honest, Rivers probably should put some of that rage toward his team for losing to the lowly Nets. "It's a must-win game again".

"It's amusing. I knew something was going on because I kept getting calls from my friends in, like, Boston", he said.

Kidd said he wasn't sure how close Antetokounmpo was to a triple-double but other factors were at play. He scored 19 points on March 5, and then scored 19 twice more after Brooklyn extended him on a second 10-day contract, latching onto his chance and not letting go. But I thought his intent was at a very high level. Steve Novak and Khris Middleton were inactive. That's still the case, but first-year head coach Kenny Atkinson and his players have approached every game with a need to prove themselves. Isaiah Whitehead, a rookie from Seton Hall, is starting at point guard with veteran Jeremy Lin sidelined by a hamstring injury. They've now finally won their third game without him, overall going 3-9 over that stretch, including a 7-game losing streak that ended in the win over the Clippers. I don't think everyone has that.

"The last two years we've been absolutely destroyed in Cleveland", Redick said.
