NEW YORK (AP) — Boston coach Doc Rivers was fined $25,000 by the NBA on Thursday for publicly criticizing game officials after the Celtics’ loss to New York on Tuesday night.

When asked about two fouls on Kevin Garnett in the first 3:20 of the Celtics’ 87-71 loss in Game 2 of the playoff series, Rivers called them “horrendous.”

The Knicks lead the series 2-0. Game 3 is Friday night in Boston.
