Doc Rivers on Ejection: ‘It Was an Awful Tech’


Doc Rivers had to be held back by players and assistant coaches after he was ejected in the first of two overtimes during the team’s 127-122 loss to the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday.With 18.6 seconds left in the first overtime and the Clippers trailing 117-115, Rivers walked past midcourt, almost to the Nets’ bench, to argue a foul called by official Lauren Holtkamp.

Rivers was whistled for a technical foul and then handed a second technical and an automatic ejection by lead official Ken Mauer, which set Rivers off. “I thought it was an awful tech,” Rivers said after the Clippers lost for a third straight time on the road.
