National Basketball Association fines Grizzlies' Fizdale $30000 for officiating rant

National Basketball Association fines Grizzlies' Fizdale $30000 for officiating rant

"We don't normally say anything about anything, so I think Coach just finally just had enough, kind of got to a boiling point", Conley said.

National Basketball Association rules prohibit public criticism of game officials.

The Spurs took 32 free throws, and Kawshi Leonard received more than then entire Grizzlies team combined - hitting 19-for-19.

"First half, we shot 19 shots in the paint, and we had six free throws".

"I'm not a numbers guy, but that doesn't seem to add up", might be the best quote of the postseason. "I know Pops got pedigree and I'm a young rookie, but they're not gone rook us like that".

In the video, Stephens told Mr Godwin the name of his girlfriend and said: "She's the reason that this is about to happen to you". The woman Stephens spoke of, Joy Lane, said in a text message to CBS that "we had been in a relationship for several years".

The Spurs have a 2-0 lead over Memphis, and Parker said the most important thing for the Spurs to keep in mind heading into Game 3 in Memphis is limiting turnovers.

If Fizdale had stopped there, he might have avoided getting fined by the league. Prior to those match-ups and all First Round games, Grizzlies Playoff Plaza Parties will begin two hours prior to tip-off. I got to be honest with you. A furious Fizdale complained that the officiating crew had unfairly skewed the free-throw count against his players. He stated that when a team has a point guard like Mike Conley, a player who has gone his whole career without a technical foul, receives no respect from the officials, even though he has earned it.

Fizdale's rant backfires, the Grizzlies barely get to the free throw line, and the Spurs rip the hearts out of all Grizzlies fans by stealing game three on the road. Gregg Popovich's Spurs, by comparison, went inside 18 times and attempted 32 free throws. But since Conley, who past year signed a contract worth an astonishing $153 million, is in a generous mood and he's a loyal guy above all, he should probably just take care of Fiz too.

Spurs star Kawhi Leonard made 19-19 free throws on his way to scoring a game-high 37 points. But, again, I'm not going to emphasize it, I'm not going to point it out. Overall, 35 times we shot the ball in the paint.

The first-year coach inferred there was a lack of respect from the referees for the Grizz that resulted in the Spurs attempting 17 more free throws than the Grizzlies.
