Orlando Magic's Cole Anthony fined $25,000 for derogatory remarks toward official

NEW YORK -- Orlando Magic guard Cole Anthony has been fined $25,000 by the NBA for directing profane and derogatory remarks toward a game official.

The incident occurred at the conclusion of Orlando's 111-102 loss to the LA Clippers on Wednesday night at Amway Center. Byron Spruell, the president of league operations, announced the fine Friday.

The Magic (9-40) have endured a frustrating season and own the NBA's worst record. They host the Detroit Pistons on Friday night.
