Clippers combo guard Austin Rivers isn't having a good week.
Saturday, the National Basketball Association slapped Griffin with a $25,000 fine for an outburst directed at what appeared to be one of his own team's fans during Thursday's loss to the Utah Jazz.
Rivers apologized for his actions and said that he was only taking up for Clippers teammate DeAndre Jordan, whom he said was being trash-talked about. "He was talking sh** about the team, but he was cheering during the first half".
Rivers certainly didn't give the fan a reason to chirp him, as the 25-year-old scored a team-high 25 points.

Austin Rivers is seen walking towards a courtside fan with just over three minutes left in the fourth quarter and can be seen mouthing the words "shut the f*** up" at one point.
Rivers and the Clippers lost 126-107 to the Jazz. "I'm sorry for using profanity, but I was sticking up for my teammate, bottom line". "This is the message I want to say".
