The NBA fined Dallas Mavericks forward Shawn Marion $25,000 for criticizing the league's officiating after the team lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder last night, the league announced Saturday.

Marion commented about the foul calls after the Mavericks lost 117-114 in overtime to the Thunder on Friday night. Thunder forward Kevin Durant scored a career-high 52 points and went to the free-throw line 21 times in the victory. Durant hit all 21 of his attempts.

The Thunder had 36 free-throw attempts to the Mavericks' 30.

"It's hard to beat anybody when you're playing five on eight," Marion said. "That's nuts. Some of them were fouls. Some of them were questionable. But it is what it is."

Marion scored eight points and had seven rebounds in the loss and is averaging 10.4 poings and 8.4 rebounds for the Mavericks this season.
