Doc Rivers fined

The NBA has fined Celtics coach Doc Rivers $25,000 for “conduct surrounding his ejection” during Monday’s 102-96 loss to the Atlanta Hawks. Rivers was angry after Glen “Big Baby” Davis was called for a flagrant foul on Atlanta Marvin Williams on a breakaway layup attempt. Rivers was seen saying the call was “awful” and told reporters he planned to talk with the league about the two technicals from official Bennett Salvatore.
