Marcus Smart Fined $15K For Criticism Of Ref

The NBA fined Marcus Smart $15,000 for criticizing the refs following the Boston Celtics' 108-87 win over the Charlotte Hornets on Thursday night.

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

Smart was first angered by foul calls in the third quarter, leading to an argument with Brad Stevens.

Smart then got a technical foul for a confrontation with Miles Bridges.
