Josh Smith and an unnamed assistant coach for the Los Angeles Clippers engaged in an obscenity-laced argument on Sunday while the media were waiting for Doc Rivers' postgame news conference to begin.
"It's [like any] locker room after you lose and play like that," Rivers said. "Guys are upset. That's about it."
The Clippers are now 6-7 after beginning the season 4-0.
"We're pretty frustrated,'' Blake Griffin said. "It's been three in a row, so I think it's pretty normal to be frustrated. But we can't let that frustration affect us negatively moving forward.''
Josh Smith signed a one-year, veterans-minimum, $1.5 million contract with the Clippers in July.
