Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue has been fined $25,000 by the NBA for public criticism of officiating for comments made during the postgame press conference after falling to the Golden State Warriors in Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Friday night.


“(LeBron James) never gets calls,” Lue said. “I mean, he attacks. He’s one of the most — outside ofRussell Westbrook, he’s one of the guys that attacks the paint every single play. And he doesn’t get a fair whistle all the time because of his strength and because of his power and guys bounce off of him. But those are still fouls and we weren’t able to get them. But we’ve got to play through officiating.”
