Official rule
You do not want your favorite team to loose a point 
 12.L. Coaching. Players may consult with any person during time-outs and between games. Once the game has begun, except during time-outs, any communication between a player and any person not on the court, if determined by the referee to be coaching, shall result in a technical warning to the offending player or team and a verbal warning to spectators. If the communication occurs a second time, it shall result in a technical foul and a point will be awarded to the opponent. (Revised February, 2013) 

Spectator Etiquette
Applaud great play, regardless of which team won the point
Do not applaud when an error is made 
Do not sit or stand in front of other spectators, in such a way that you block their view
Do not talk to a line judge during a match
If a player needs medical help - seek out one of the medical volunteers immediately
