Cavaliers coach fined for criticizing officiating

BY foxsports • December 9, 2012

Cleveland Cavaliers coach Byron Scott has been fined $25,000 by the NBA for criticizing the officiating following a 91-73 loss at the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night.

The Cavs attempted just nine free throws to Minnesota's 35, and Scott said the officiating was ''that bad.'' He said: ''I mean I understand we're playing in Minnesota, but 35-9, we went to the basket just as much as they did.''

The NBA announced the fine on Sunday.
