NEW YORK, April 2 (UPI) -- Boston forward Kevin Garnett was fined $25,000 Friday by the NBA for criticizing game officials and using inappropriate language.
Garnett made the comments after the Celtics lost a 109-104 decision to Oklahoma City in Boston. He referred to a free throw discrepancy, in which Boston was 13-of-17 for the game as a team while the Thunder's Kevin Durant was 15-of-15 alone and Oklahoma City had 34 overall.
"We were playing Michael (expletive) Jordan tonight, the way he was getting the whistle," Garnett said in a post-game news conference. "Durant damn near shot more free throws than our whole team. That's the game."
The disciplinary action was announced Friday by NBA Vice President of Basketball Operations Stu Jackson.
