Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers was critical of the refs during Saturday's Game 7 of the opening-round NBA playoffs series against the San Antonio Spurs.
After Clippers point guard Chris Paul hit a buzzer-beating three-pointer to end the third quarter, Rivers told TNT's Jaime Maggio the officials had made a "horrible" call the play before. The remark could draw Rivers a suspension from the NBA.
Rivers was fined $25,000 by the league after criticizing the officials following the Clippers' Game 5 loss on Tuesday.
"I thought we got some really tough calls tonight, some brutal calls," Rivers said after the Clippers' 111–107 home loss.
