Rivers told a fan to "shut the (expletive) up" during the game.

"I definitely shouldn't have said anything," Rivers said before Friday's practice in Dallas. "This is the message I want to say. This is the message I want to say. I'm sorry for using profanity, but I was sticking up for my teammate, bottom line."
