Published:
NEW YORK — The NBA fined Indiana Pacers forward Paul George $25,000 on Tuesday for his public criticism of the officiating in the Eastern Conference finals Game 4 loss to Miami.
 Rod Thorn, the league's president of basketball operations, said George made his comments in the postgame news conference following the 102-90 loss to the Heat on Monday night.
 Miami was 30 of 34 from the foul line in the game. Indiana was 11 of 17.
 George said his team couldn't overcome a "20-point differential" that came through foul calls. He said Miami won the game at the free-throw line.
 Miami leads the series 3-1 and can advance to the NBA Finals for the fourth straight year with a win in Indiana on Wednesday night.
