Marcus Smart has been fined $15,000 for public criticism of the officiating.
The comments were made following the Celtics’ 123-120 loss to the Houston Rockets on Saturday, March 3 at Toyota Center.
Smart was critical of the way James Harden is officiated.
"When you're playing a guy like that who gets those types of calls, it's pretty much like you're playing in foul trouble," Smart said after the game. "You've got to play really certain. You have to be really solid. You can't really play the defense that you want, because you know nine times out of 10 he's going to get those calls. It doesn't matter whether your hands are up or not. He still gets them.
"We saw that here tonight a few times, and we've seen that every other game. He has a way of using his hands, grabbing us, pulling us into him and drawing those fouls. He's been doing it for a long time. He gets the benefit of the doubt."
