NBA fines coach Jackson $25,000 for criticismMay 27th, 2009 - 1:53 pm ICT by IANS
Washington, May 27 (Xinhua) Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson was fined $25,000 by the National Basketball Association (NBA) for criticising referees after game four of the NBA Western Conference finals.
The Lakers organisation was also fined $25,000, the day after a 120-101 loss to the Denver Nuggets that evened the series.
Jackson was angry with the free throw discrepancy, with Denver’s 49 attempts, 14 more than the Lakers. He also hit out at the Nuggets’ Dahntay Jones who apparently pulled off a dirty play to trip Kobe Bryant.
