NBA fines Theus $25,000 for comments about officiating

NEW YORK -- The NBA has fined Sacramento Kings coach Reggie Theus $25,000 for comments he made about the officiating following a loss to Detroit.

The league also penalized the Kings $25,000 on Thursday for Theus' actions.

Theus said it was "ridiculous" that the Pistons took 36 fouls shots to just 17 for the Kings in Detroit's 100-92 victory in Sacramento on Tuesday.
