    NEW YORK — Boston guard Marcus Smart has been fined $15,000 (around P760,000) by the NBA for public criticism of the officiating.

    The NBA fined Smart on Friday (Saturday, Manila time), a day after his comments following the Celtics' 108-87 victory at Charlotte.

    "Really, just, I wish they would call the game the right way," Smart said on Thursday night.

    "A lot of calls that they called, I didn't understand where the fouls were. And it just seems like whenever I get the ball and I'm on offense, I can't get a call. Nobody else is going to protect yourself. You've got to protect yourself. So if that means I've got to lose a little bit of money, then I've got to lose a bit."
