Los Angeles Clippers guard Austin Rivers has been finned $25,000 by the National Basketball Association for a verbal altercation with a fan during the Clippers' blowout loss to the Utah Jazz on Thursday night, according to Adrian Wojnarowksi of ESPN.

This is how bad it's gotten for the Los Angeles Clippers this season: Now their own fan base is trash talking them during a game.

Rivers and the Clippers lost 126-107 to the Jazz. Gave him dap, a handshake and a hug and said, 'Hey, I apologize.

"He was being a fairweather ass fan", said Rivers.

"He was talking s- about the team, not even me". I was frustrated.' They were like, 'We weren't the people who said that.' I go, 'I'm sorry, I shouldn't have reacted that way anyways.' He said, 'It was someone behind us.' That's what I heard. "But I was wrong".

The 25-year-old is in his third full season with the Clippers after coming over in a trade with the Boston Celtics back during the 2014-15 campaign.

After losing Blake Griffin for two months to an MCL sprain on Monday night, the Clips got blown out at home by the Utah Jazz in their next game on Thursday night to drop to 8-12 on the season.

Clippers combo guard Austin Rivers isn't having a good week. They take on the Mavericks in Dallas on Saturday.
