Rivers fined $25,000

Coach Doc Rivers was fined $25,000 for criticizing NBA officials following Tuesday's game two loss against the Knicks.

Rivers voiced his opinion about the two fouls that were called on Kevin Garnett early in the first quarter during his postgame press conference.
"I thought the fouls on Kevin were horrendous and had a huge effect on us," Rivers said. 

On Wednesday, Rivers commented about his postgame words on the officials and didn't think he specifically attacked the officiating.
"I didn't think I said much, and that could be a problem," Rivers said. "Because all I basically said was, Kevin getting into foul trouble had a huge impact on the game. That's not criticizing officials. So I've just got to make sure we focus on our stuff."
