Cavs’ Scott expects league fine

Cavaliers coach Byron Scott said he expects to be fined by the

NBA after criticizing officials following a loss at Orlando.

After Cleveland’s 110-100 loss on Friday, Scott criticized

officials Ed Malloy, Bennie Adams and Kevin Fehr. He bemoaned

having to play a team where ”there’s five white jerseys and three

with stripes. … It’s hard when you’re playing against eight


Scott also complained about the crew’s inconsistency.

Scott, who is in his first year with the Cavaliers, was

contacted by a league official on Saturday. He said the league

asked some questions and were ”pretty satisfied” with his

answers. Scott has never been fined as a coach in previous stops at

New Jersey or New Orleans.
