Clippers guard Austin Rivers, the NBA’s Draco Malfoy, is reportedly being investigated by the league after allegedly hitting a fan with a seat cushion during last night’s game against the Kings.

USA Today’s Sam Amick has the scoop:

The NBA is investigating an incident on Wednesday night in which Los Angeles Clippers guard Austin Rivers threw a seat cushion that flew into the stands and hit a fan at Sleep Train Arena in the fourth quarter of a game against the Sacramento Kings, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.


The situation caused a stir among Kings fans on hand, as the woman who was hit by the cushion in the second row was clearly experiencing discomfort in her eyes for quite some time after the incident.


Maybe Rivers will ultimately avoid being punished by the NBA, but he will surely be sent to bed without dinner tonight by Doc Rivers.
