MIAMI -- Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra can kiss his bonus for advancing to the next round of the playoffs goodbye. The NBA fined Spoelstra $25,000 on Friday for making public comments about officiating.


Before the Heat's Game 6 victory to close out the Indiana Pacers on Thursday, Spoelstra said league officials had been ignoring a series of hits to the head against LeBron James and Dwyane Wade in the series.

Spoelstra had a prepared statement ready as an answer to the league for the suspension of Heat forward Udonis Haslem for Thursday's game after a flagrant foul in Game 5. Pacers forward Tyler Hansbrough was not suspended for a flagrant foul on Wade.

It might affect future games hopefully, but the "Veteran" refs definitely did not show up for us last game
