(NEW YORK) — New York Knicks head coach Mike Woodson was fined $25,000 by the NBA on Friday for his public criticism of referees.
Woodson’s comments came Thursday, one day after the Knicks overtime loss to Indiana.
He referred specifically to a play late in the contest where he believed star player Carmelo Anthony was fouled. No call was made and New York went on to lose, 103-96.
The third year head coach complained that his top player was not getting the same treatment as some of the leagues other superstars.
Anthony said that he would not comment on the officials after the game on Wednesday night but has voiced his displeasure in the past. Following a loss to the Houston Rockets on Nov. 14, Anthony said in order for a foul to be called “I got to get cut; you’ve got to see blood.”
Woodson and the Knicks are 3-8 on the season so far and have lost their last four games.
