Enraged Rivers ejected after technical for crossing midcourt

Enraged Rivers ejected after technical for crossing midcourt

Tuesday's game at the Barclays Center swung back and forth, and a series of events following a personal foul on Chris Paul led to head coach Doc Rivers being ejected. "I think we are smelling ourselves a little bit".

"We were walking around like we done something and that bothers me because we've done (nothing)".

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

In 18 games this season, Griffin is playing 33.1 minutes - essentially the same as last season - averaging 21.1 points, 8.7 rebounds and 4.4 assists.

Lob City got clipped by Sean Kilpatrick, who dropped 38 points on the Clippers along with 14 boards. When Marks and Kenny Atkinson met with the media before start of camp, the Nets GM was asked for an example of a player who had surprised. "He didn't know what we were talking about". I just knew I got fined.

Before the Clippers participated in their shoot-around early Thursday afternoon, they watched a lot of film of their recent transgressions. "You'll see tomorrow that's what they're going to say and we're all going to know that's not the reason".

NEW ORLEANS - Anthony Davis recorded his 11th double-double of the season - finishing with 41 points and 16 rebounds - as New Orleans ended a two-game losing streak with its fifth consecutive home victory. So it was the damnedest tech to give at that time.

The Clippers were serious by the end.

The Clippers trailed by two late in the first OT and fouled Nets rookie Isaiah Whitehead in the backcourt after he received the inbounds pass. Rivers appeared to think Whitehead swung his elbows and should have been called for the foul, and he walked almost to the Nets' bench to say something to referee Lauren Holtkamp.

Rivers claimed after the game that Mauer intervened as the coach spoke to another referee, Lauren Holtkamp, which is what set him off.

Following the Nets' win, Mauer met with the pool reporter to address the technicals.

Rivers missed Kilpatrick's masterful finish, which he capped with a three-point play with 13.5 seconds left. The Cavs were embarrassed at the Milwaukee Bucks, while the Clippers lost in double overtime at the Brooklyn Nets during a odd night in the National Basketball Association. That stingy defensive unit is gone, replaced by a team that had been gashed by Sacramento (115 points), Toronto (115) and Dallas (104) in recent wins and blitzed by Detroit (108) and Brooklyn as part of a troublesome three-game skid.

His 20-point quarter showed Kilpatrick's best.

The Clippers and Holtkamp have some history.

LA was up by 12 points at halftime.

The Clippers' had both of their rookies in the locker room for the first time in weeks with Brice Johnson and Diamond Stone both in Brooklyn. "I'm not smart enough to use biometrics.". "But the people we hired did, and they told me biometrically that this would be a good day for him to rest".

The goal of the session was to try and identify why the Clippers have had so many hiccups in their last three losses and how those could be fixed before facing the defending National Basketball Association champion Cleveland Cavaliers that night at Quicken Loans Arena. The Clippers have lost the last four meetings.
