It has been announced today that the NBA has fined Dallas Mavericks' owner, Mark Cuban, and head coach Rick Carlisle, a combined total of $110,000 for arguing with officials in the 95-86 loss to Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday.
Carlisle was fined $35,000 after he disagreed with a call made by a referee and subsequently kicked the ball into the stands in retaliation. He was instantly ejected from the game with 9.34 left in the fourth quarter.
After the game Carlisle said, “The incident where the ball got kicked into the stands, that can’t happen.”
Dallas Mavericks' owner Cuban was fined $75,000 for the comments he made about the officials after the game.
