Christopher Trotman/Getty Images(DEERFIELD, Ill.) — Chicago Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau has been fined $35,000 for his postgame comments about the Game 3 officiating.

“I see how things are going, I watch very closely,” Thibodeau said after the game. “We’re not going to get calls, that’s reality.”

Thibodeau was asked again on Sunday about the officiating before the fine was placed, and said that he was focused on Game 4.

Nazr Mohammed was ejected on Saturday night after pushing LeBron James, but Thibodeau believed James was acting.

“I don’t think it warranted an ejection. I understand a flagrant foul, I understand that, but ejection, no, nope,” he continued.

Miami leads the series 2-1 with Game 4 in Chicago on Monday.
