Doc Rivers Absolutely Loses His Mind After A Foul Call, Gets Ejected [VIDEO]
Los Angeles Clippers head coach Doc Rivers began arguing angrily with a referee after a foul call in the first overtime against the Brooklyn Nets, then he got hit with a technical foul and he really lost it.
Rivers first began arguing the foul with the ref who called it right in front of the Clippers bench. Clearly Rivers didn’t agree with the call, but when another ref charged the Clippers coach with a technical foul from the other side of the court he went insane.

It took a handful of his players to hold Rivers back from going after the refs including his two star big men Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan. Rivers son Austin couldn’t even calm his infuriated father down.
Finally Clippers assistant coach Sam Cassell got a hold of Rivers and managed to cool things off just before Rivers was escorted off the floor and into the locker room for the remainder of the game.
The Clippers ended up losing in double overtime 127-122 in the absence of their ejected head coach.
