The Los Angeles Clippers had plenty of highlights in last night's 125-121 win over the Dallas Mavericks. But basketball fans might be more likely to remember the game for what happened to Clippers head coach Doc Rivers during the third quarter.

In the waning seconds of the quarter, Rivers tried to quickly approach the referee to dispute an uncalled double dribble.

But Rivers didn't account for how slick the Staples Center floor was and embarrassingly tumbled to the ground in a split.

You can see the moment in this Bleacher Report video below:

The internet wasn't too kind to Rivers as videos of peoples' reactions as well as what they imagine he said quickly flooded Twitter.

While it initially looked like Rivers came up limping slightly after he fell, he seemed fine by the end of the game.

The Clippers won the game thanks to a 32-point performance from Danilo Gallinari, and another 26 points from Lou Williams off the bench.
