He wasn’t happy with the fan.
The Los Angeles Clippers have lost seven out of their last ten games, including a 19-point loss to the Utah Jazz last night.
During the loss to the Jazz, Clippers point guard Austin Rivers got into it with a fan.
Down 119-100 with just over three minutes remaining in the game, Rivers can be seen yelling at a fan, and can be heard telling the fan to “shut the f*** up.”

Losing takes its toll, but yelling at fans as your team loses yet another game isn’t a great look. Rivers will likely receive some type of reprimand from the league, with a potential fine on the table.
The Clippers lost Blake Gordon just a few days ago, and he’s likely to be out for up to two months. That coupled with the fact that DeAndre Jordan is on the trade block, and Los Angeles is in trouble.
