New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - The NBA fined Memphis Grizzlies forward
Zach Randolph $25,000 for publicly criticizing the officiating following his
team's recent loss to the Houston Rockets.
Randolph told reporters after Memphis' 100-92 defeat on Thursday that the
Rockets -- and Houston guard James Harden in particular -- were receiving
favorable calls from the referees throughout the contest. Harden went to the
foul line 25 times during the game, with the Rockets shooting 40 free throws
to Memphis' 20.
