Rivers fined for outburst

EAST RUTHERFORD, January 14 – The National Basketball Association fined Boston coach Doc Rivers 25,000 dollars on Wednesday for an argument with officials that saw him tossed from a game.Rivers, speaking before Boston’s game against New Jersey, admitted he was disappointed by the move.

"They admit that the … call was wrong," Rivers said before the Celtics’ game against the New Jersey Nets. "Of all the fines I’ve ever had, this is by far the most disappointing. I just don’t get this one. I watched a couple of coaches last week run out on the floor and no fine. I get fined for being right."

Rivers was irked over a flagrant foul called on Glen Davis with six minutes remaining in Monday’s 102-96 loss to Atlanta.

Rivers received two technical fouls but kept shouting at referee Bennett Salvatore. Another technical was called on Celtics assistant coach Armond Hill.
