Clippers’ guard Rivers fined for cushion toss


LOS ANGELES: Los Angeles Clippers guard Austin Rivers, son of Clips coach Doc Rivers, was fined $25,000 by the NBA on Thursday for throwing a seat cushion that hit a fan in the face. NBA executive vice president of basketball operations Kiki Vandeweghe announced the disciplinary action one day after the Wednesday incident at the Kings’ arena in Sacramento. With 7:47 left in the fourth quarter of the Clippers’ season opening 111-104 win, Rivers flung the cushion. The fan it hit appeared to experience eye discomfort and those sitting near her expressed concern.
