Los Angeles Clippers head coach Tyronn Lue has been hit with a $35,000 fine by the NBA for publicly criticizing the officiating and questioning the integrity of game officials following his team’s 130-125 win against the Golden State Warriors.

The NBA announced the fine in response to Lue’s actions, which occurred outside the Clippers’ locker room after the closely contested victory at Chase Center.

Despite the fine, the Clippers continue to maintain a strong position in the Western Conference standings, currently holding the third seed with 36 wins and 17 losses.
