The 2015–16 NBA season is fully underway. Every team has played at least one game, and the schedule continues on Friday night with 12 games on the schedule.
Check out the latest NBA news and rumors below.
• Mavericks owner Mark Cuban took a shot at the Clippers before Thursday’s game, telling reporters that “the Clippers are who they’ve been for the past 30 years.” The Clippers poked fun at Cuban, putting him on the “kiss cam” with Clippers owner Steve Ballmer.
• Indiana Pacers forward Paul George has been fined $10,000 by the league for publicly criticizing officials after the team's loss to the Toronto Raptors Wednesday night, the NBA announced on Thursday.
• Pacers fans taunted Memphis Grizzlies forward Matt Barnes with chants of “Derek Fisher” during Memphis' 112–103 road win over the Pacers. The chants were in response to Barnes’s alleged confrontation with Fisher over Barnes’ estranged wife Gloria Govan in early October.
• Atlanta Hawks swingman Thabo Sefolosha says he had “nightmares” following his arrest outside a New York nightclub in April, reports GQ magazine. Sefolosha suffered a broken fibula and several torn ligaments due to the incident. He was found not guilty of all charges, including obstruction of governmental administration, earlier this month.
