Darby Stanchfield was surprised to learn that the NBA loves Scandal

(ABC)

Darby Stanchfield sat down with Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, and in addition to discussing what it was like to work with celebrity-fan Lena Dunham on Scandal, the actress said she was surprised to learn L.A. Clippers coach Doc Rivers was a Scandal enthusiast as well.

“When I saw him, I was like ‘Doc Rivers you’re one of the best coaches in the NBA,’” Stanchfield said. “And he said ‘Abby, it’s Abby.’”

Rivers also revealed to the actress that he and the rest of the NBA watch the ABC hit show.

“That is true,” Kimmel said. “A lot of guys in NBA watch Scandal.” When the audience thought the host was joking he re-assured them, saying “I happen to know that for a fact.”
