Indiana Pacers forward Paul George was fined $25,000 by the NBA for his post-game comments about the officials in the wake of his team's 102-90 Game 4 loss to the Miami Heat on Monday.

Indiana Pacers forward Paul George was fined $25,000 by the NBA on May 27. 

The reason for the hefty fine is his criticism of the officials in the wake of the Pacers' 102-90 loss to the Miami Heat in their Eastern Conference Finals matchup, per The Indianapolis Star's Candace Buckner: 

"One day after Indiana Pacers All-Star Paul George complained about the Miami Heat's 'home cooking,' the NBA responded. 

"George was fined $25,000 Wednesday for public criticism of officiating after the Pacers' 102-90 loss in Game 4. The Heat attempted 34 free throws compared to the Pacers' 17 and following the loss, several players commented on the discrepancy. 

"However, George took it further by blaming the loss on the Heat's advantage at the free throw line. 

"When asked if Miami's free throws had resulted in the team playing more aggressive or simply playing at home, George replied: 'What do you think? I mean, you can't tell me we don't attack the basket as much as they attatck the basket.'

"'You can't tell me we're not aggressive Maybe we're too aggressive. But I feel like we're just as aggressive as they are attacking the basket and making plays at the rim. Maybe this was just home cooking.'

"George also said that the Pacers had 'outplayed' the Heat but the free-throw discrepancy served as the biggest difference in the game.

"'Probably free throws,' George said. 'I know we gave up 20...points off turnovers. But we can overcome that. You can't overcome a 20-point differential in free throws.'"

 

The Heat currently lead the best-of-seven Eastern Conference Finals 3-1. They can advance to their fourth straight NBA Finals with a win in Indianapolis on May 28. 

George is averaging 21.4 points, 7.7 rebounds and 4.1 assists in the playoffs through May 27. He had 23 points, seven rebounds and three assists in the 12-point loss to Miami on Monday.
