Austin Rivers: Doc’s ejection ‘made my night’

Austin Rivers

Austin Rivers had an all-time great troll moment during a game between the Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Clippers.

Late in the fourth quarter of Wednesday’s game, Doc Rivers was involved in a heated exchange with the refrees. That’s when none other than his son Austin motioned for the officials to give his father a technical foul. After the officials T’d up and ejected the elder Rivers, Austin proceeded to troll his father on Doc’s way off the court.

After the game, Austin said his father getting ejected “made his night.”

Austin has had somewhat of a frosty relationship with his father despite playing for him on the Clippers for four seasons. He has said his dad was not around when he was growing up, so that might explain why he enjoyed the moment on Wednesday night.

The next Rivers family gathering should be very interesting — which is exactly what Rivers said in a joke on Twitter.
