Los Angeles Lakers' Phil Jackson fined


Posted Apr 15 2010 10:02PM

NEW YORK (AP) -- Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson was fined 35,000 dollars by the NBA on Thursday for criticizing game officials.

The fine was for Jackson's comments prior to the Lakers' victory over Sacramento on Tuesday, but his remarks referred to officiating calls on Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant.

It was the second time this month that Jackson was fined for blasting game officials.

He was docked the same amount for his remarks after a loss to San Antonio on April 4.
