NBA fines Paul George for criticizing refs after opener
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Indiana Pacers forward Paul George was fined $10,000 by the NBA on Thursday for publicly criticizing the officials.
After Wednesday night's season-opening loss at Toronto, the two-time All-Star told reporters that Indiana was frustrated by ''a lot of bad calls.''
George may have been frustrated by poor shooting as well. He finished 4 of 17 from the field in a 106-99 loss.
The league office made the announcement just before tip-off of Thursday night's home opener against Memphis.
