TORONTO, May 22 (UPI) -- Following his critical comments regarding referees during the Toronto Raptors' Game 3 win, coach Dwane Casey has been fined $25,000.

The Cleveland Cavaliers were called for 10 fouls in the game. Casey contended Saturday that center Bismack Biyombo was not getting fair treatment with foul calls. Biyombo was also called for a flagrant-1 foul on LeBron James in the victory.

"[Biyombo] is not getting the calls," Casey said after the game. "We shoot zero free throws in the fourth quarter. Zero. He's getting hit. There's one play where they almost have a brawl. He gets killed on that play."

"I don't know if he's getting hit because of how physical and tough he is, but he's getting cracked. To his credit, I thought he was going to lose his head when he got the technical foul, but he kept playing."

Cleveland's Dahntay Jones was also suspended for one game for a hit on Biyombo late in the game.

"He's one of the top rebounders in the league, and no telling how many times he gets hit and fouled under there without being called. Again, I'm going to say this: I think he gets hit almost on every rebound and putback there is, and he just doesn't get the calls, whether he's rolling to the bucket, and we've just got to have consistency with that."
