Doc Rivers ejected after trying to fight ref

Doc Rivers is one of the more sensible coaches in the NBA. He doesn’t sleep with Matt Barnes’ girlfriend (Derek Fisher, looking at you) or drunkenly crash his whip into telephone poles (Jason Kidd), but he does lose it from time to time. 

Incensed by receiving a bullshit tech for “leaving the coaching box,” Rivers went from pretty angry to fully irate real quick.

I thought it was an awful tech. Honestly, I think you guys know why the tech was called. The official who had nothing to do with the play thought I was yelling at Lauren and I wasn’t. Actually, she said, ‘Doc, you’re right,’ or whatever, ‘Let’s walk back.’ We were walking. We weren’t even arguing. It was the damnedest tech to give at that time.

I bet the rest of the Clippers told Austin Rivers, “Yo, your dad was pretty drunk last night…”
