Feb. 2 8:38 AM PT9:38 AM MT10:38 AM CT11:38 AM ET16:38 GMT0:38 9:38 AM MST11:38 AM EST20:38 UAE17:3811:38 ET10:38 AM CTNaN:� - Rivers hit just 4 of 12 shot attempts while recording 14 points, four assists and three steals in Wednesday's win at Phoenix.

Jan. 23 8:58 PM PT9:58 PM MT10:58 PM CT11:58 PM ET4:58 GMT12:58 9:58 PM MST11:58 PM EST8:58 UAE05:5823:58 ET10:58 PM CTNaN:� - Rivers scored 27 points, helping the Los Angeles Clippers beat the Atlanta Hawks 115-105 on Monday night.

Jan. 17 6:52 AM PT7:52 AM MT8:52 AM CT9:52 AM ET14:52 GMT22:52 7:52 AM MST9:52 AM EST18:52 UAE15:529:52 ET8:52 AM CTNaN:� - Rivers had 16 points and six assists in the Clippers' win over Oklahoma City on Monday.
Analysis: The coach's son is one of several players to step up in Blake Griffin's absence, having averaged a useful 18.4 points and 4.4 assists over his past five games. Rivers should continue to hold down a key role, especially if Chris Paul is forced to miss time with the thumb injury he sustained Monday.
Jan. 8 10:02 AM PT11:02 AM MT12:02 PM CT1:02 PM ET18:02 GMT2:02 11:02 AM MST1:02 PM EST22:02 UAE19:0213:02 ET12:02 PM CTNaN:� - Rivers will start Wednesday against the Magic.

Analysis: This effort followed a season-high 28-point performance Wednesday against Memphis, in which Rivers ended 10 of 16 from the field. Since drawing into the lineup on Dec. 26, Doc's son has averaged 17.9 points to help fill the void created by Blake Griffin's injury-related absence.
Jan. 5 9:49 PM PT10:49 PM MT11:49 PM CT12:49 AM ET5:49 GMT13:49 10:49 PM MST12:49 AM EST9:49 UAE06:490:49 ET11:49 PM CTNaN:� - Rivers scored a season-high 28 points and helped rally the Los Angeles Clippers from a 12-point deficit in the third quarter to beat the Memphis Grizzlies 115-106 on Wednesday night for their second win in a row.
Analysis: Rivers is still far too inconsistent to help in fantasy on a regular basis, but if Chris Paul is out he's capable of something like this.
Dec. 30 5:19 PM PT6:19 PM MT7:19 PM CT8:19 PM ET1:19 GMT9:19 6:19 PM MST8:19 PM EST5:19 UAE (+1)02:1920:19 ET7:19 PM CTNaN:� - Rivers was ejected Friday after missing a layup and slightly pushing referee J.T. Orr with 6:38 left in the second quarter. He yelled at Orr and waved his arms at him after the ejection and was led off the court by a Clippers employee.

Analysis: With J.J. Redick out the last two games, Rivers has helped fill the offensive void with 43 points on 17-of-27 shooting. He's just 4 for 14 from downtown, though, and has five assists with six turnovers.
Dec. 27 6:43 AM PT7:43 AM MT8:43 AM CT9:43 AM ET14:43 GMT22:43 7:43 AM MST9:43 AM EST18:43 UAE15:439:43 ET8:43 AM CTNaN:� - Rivers had 19 points and five assists in the Clippers' 106-102 loss to the Nuggets on Monday.

July 8 3:50 PM PT4:50 PM MT5:50 PM CT6:50 PM ET22:50 GMT6:50 3:50 PM MST5:50 PM EST2:50 UAE (+1)00:5018:50 ET5:50 PM CT21:50 - The Clippers re-signed Rivers on Friday.
