Byron Scott expects league fine
CLEVELAND -- Cavaliers coach Byron Scott said he expects to be fined by the NBA after criticizing officials following a loss at Orlando.
After Cleveland's 110-100 loss on Friday, Scott criticized officials Ed Malloy, Bennie Adams and Kevin Fehr. He bemoaned having to play a team where "there's five white jerseys and three with stripes. ... It's hard when you're playing against eight people."
Scott also complained about the crew's inconsistency.
Scott, who is in his first year with the Cavaliers, was contacted by a league official on Saturday. He said the league asked some questions and were "pretty satisfied" with his answers. Scott has never been fined as a coach in previous stops at New Jersey or New Orleans.
