Doc Rivers calls officiating in Rockets game 'a complete joke'

Share

Frustrated by the free-throw disparity, Clippers coach Doc Rivers vehemently expressed his displeasure with the officiating following his team's 101-96 loss to the Houston Rockets Thursday night at the Toyota Center before 18,055 fans.

During the game, the Clippers scored 34 more points in the paint than the Rockets, shot 23 less three pointers and yet still were not at the charity stripe. That's a joke, that is a complete joke. Austin (Rivers) gets hit, no call.
