Warriors' Richardson, Montgomery fined by NBA

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Golden State coach Mike Montgomery was
fined $25,000 by the NBA on Friday and Jason Richardson was hit
with a $20,000 fine, both for failing to leave the court in a
timely manner and for verbal abuse of an official.

Stu Jackson, the league's senior vice president of basketball
operations, announced the penalties, two days after the incident
following the Warriors' 85-84 road loss to the Chicago Bulls.

Montgomery had no comment on his fine Friday before Golden State
faced the New York Knicks.
