Celtics' Garnett fined for criticizing refs

BY foxsports • April 2, 2010

Celtics forward Kevin Garnett has been fined $25,000 for criticizing game officials and for using inappropriate language during a postgame interview.

NBA executive vice president of operations Stu Jackson announced the discipline on Friday.

Garnett, frustrated over the amount of fouls being called in favor of Oklahoma City star Kevin Durant, made the comments following Boston's 109-104 loss to the Thunder on Wednesday night.

"I thought we were playing Michael (expletive) Jordan the way he was getting the whistle," Garnett said. "Durant damn near shot more free throws than our whole team."
