The Los Angeles Clippers were not happy with some “home cooking” the Philadelphia 76ers received in their 110-103 loss Tuesday night.

It led to Clippers star forward Paul George criticizing officials in a big way following the game.

“I thought we played well, we lost by seven,” Georgia said, via ESPN. “There was some home-court cooking tonight, to say the least.”

This has now cost George a cool $35,000 in his pocket book. The NBA announced on Thursday that he has been fined for said criticism of officials.

Those comments warranted a $35,000 fine? That seems a bit excessive.

Though, George is playing under a four-year, $136.9 million contract. That’s not even pennies on the dollar for him.
