Cavs’ Byron Scott Fined 25,000 For Criticizing Officials

Cleveland Cavaliers’ head coach Byron Scott has been fined $25,000 for public criticism of officiating, it was announced today by Stu Jackson, NBA Executive Vice President Basketball Operations.

Scott’s comments were made after the Cavalier’s 91-73 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday, Dec. 7. The Timberwolves attempted 35 FT’s to the Cavs’ 9. Here’s what Scott said postgame:

“I’m trying to figure out a way to say this without getting fined,” coach Byron Scott said of the officiating. “It was that bad. It really was. It was that bad. I mean I understand we’re playing in Minnesota, but 35-9, we went to the basket just as much as they did. I think we had 38 attempts in the paint to their 34, we get nine free throws, I think that speaks for itself.”
