NBA fines Cleveland coach

NEW YORK, Feb. 12 (UPI) -- The NBA levied a $25,000 fine against Cleveland Coach Mike Brown Thursday for critical remarks he made toward officials this week.

Cleveland's LeBron James was called for a foul on an inbounds play with .1 second remaining in the fourth quarter of a game against Indiana Tuesday. Indiana's Danny Granger made the first of two free throws to give the Pacers a 96-95 victory.

"That last call on LeBron was the worst call that I've ever been a part of," Brown said after the game. "It was an awful call. We got the game taken away from us, absolutely horrible. I feel badly for the guys in the locker room.

"If they want to fine me for telling the truth, then fine me."
