Paul George fined $35,00 for cursing officiating after Pacers’ victory
Having already been fined $10,000 in late October for criticizing officials, Paul George aired his grievances with officiating once more Friday night. Even after George scored 23 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in the Pacers’ 104–97 home victory over the Brooklyn Nets, George explicitly complained about the evening’s referees live on Fox Sports Indiana.
“The stripes was terrible,” George said. “Hopefully the league does a better job looking at s--- like this.”
The NBA fined George $35,000 for the comments Saturday.
George wasn’t the only notable incident from the game. Jordan Hill’s dunk over Bojan Bogdanovic sent one young fan into a frenzy. You can watch the slam here.
