NEW YORK (AP) — The NBA fined Paul George of the Los Angeles Clippers $35,000 on Thursday, two days after he was critical of the officiating after his team lost to the Philadelphia 76ers. The NBA says George was fined those comments, plus "his multiple prior violations of the rule prohibiting public criticism of the officiating." This marks at least the fifth time George has been fined in his career for such comments. It came with the stiffest fine — topping the $25,000 he was docked on two other occasions.
