NEW YORK, NY – NOVEMBER 29: Head coach Doc Rivers of the Los Angeles Clippers is held back by DeAndre Jordan #6 and Blake Griffin #32 after a technical foul call against the Brooklyn Nets in overtime at Barclays Center on November 29, 2016 in the Brooklyn borough of New York City.

If you were like me, you COULD NOT WAIT for Tuesday’s tilt between the Los Angeles Clippers and Brooklyn Nets (Or you could actually be like me and not even know the two teams were playing).

Well, thanks to a whole lot of craziness, we all know about this game now. Tuesday’s game became memorable for a number of reasons, whether it was double overtime, the Nets pulling out a victory, CP3 performing CPR on Paul Pierce, or Clippers coach Doc Rivers losing his damn mind.

Rivers’ craziness came during the first overtime. With the Clippers trailing by two, they were trying to play tight defense and force a steal. Instead, a foul was called. While the players showed some dismay, Rivers had enough animosity for the entire arena.

This sequence ultimately led to Rivers being ejected from the game. Oddly enough, the referee whom Rivers was screaming at didn’t give the L.A. coach the technical. It was Ken Mauer, who came from across the court to discipline Rivers.

Following the Nets’ win, Mauer met with the pool reporter to address the technicals.

Mauer is right about his behavior. But from that vantage point, it doesn’t seem like his call. But that doesn’t matter now. All that matters is how much fun Twitter had with Rivers’ meltdown.

Well, you certainly can’t say Rivers doesn’t have any passion for coaching any more. My goodness. But if we’re being honest, Rivers probably should put some of that rage toward his team for losing to the lowly Nets.
