Doc Rivers apologizes to Clippers fan during blowout loss in Cleveland

Doc Rivers knew his team's performance wasn't up to snuff in Cleveland and felt the need to tell a faithful fan far from home that he was sorry.

The Clippers only lost by 11 to the Cavs, but that doesn't tell the story: They trailed by 31 entering the fourth quarter and were called for five technical fouls as the frustration mounted. Doc Rivers spotted a Clips fan in Cleveland, and TNT cameras caught him apologizing to the fan:

The Clippers don't play the Cavaliers again this year, so the team will have to wait until next year to make it up to its presumably Ohio-based fan.
