Tom Thibodeau Fined $35,000 for Criticizing Refs After Game 3

by May 12, 2013

Things became very testy between Chicago and Miami during a contentious Heat victory that put them up 2-1. Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau, seething following the loss, ripped the referees for their role in the game. The NBA, predictably, went after Thibs’ wallet: “Tom Thibodeau has been fined $35,000 for comments he made about the officiating following the Bulls 104-94 loss to the Heat on Friday night.”
