Robin Lopez fined $25000 for 'verbally abusing' refs in Miami

Robin Lopez fined $25000 for 'verbally abusing' refs in Miami”

Robin Lopez is on the hook for $25,000 for "verbally abusing game officials and failing to leave the court in a timely manner", according to NBA Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations Kiki VanDeWeghe.

In losing its third of the four games this season against Miami, Chicago dropped its seventh straight and fell to 9-29 on the road.

BC-BKN-Bulls-Lopez Fined, 158Bulls' Robin Lopez fined for yelling at officialsEds: APNewsNow. And I think he was frustrated anyway because the game wasn't going well for him. "I felt I was never given the time to cool down".

"I find it a little frustrating". I play with passion. If I do something I feel is wrong, I apologize for it. "If not, I'll stand by it".

"I thought we came out with greater effort", Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said.

But Olynyk snuffed out any doubt with six straight points down the stretch for Miami, part of a 48-point effort by the Heat bench. The Heat have seven games remaining, the Pistons eight.

Bulls: Rookie forward Lauri Markkanen got the night off because of a sore elbow, a residual from a collision against Houston on Tuesday. Justin Holiday added 13 points for Chicago, which shot only 37 percent.

Heat: Tyler Johnson left in the first half with a sprained right ankle. Thursday was the 22nd anniversary of Alonzo Mourning's career-high 50-point game for Miami. With a Wizards win Thursday both Miami and Washington would have clinched playoff spots. A couple miles from AmericanAirlines Arena, the Cubs topped the Marlins 8-4 in an opening day game that preceded the Heat victory over the Bulls.

But, unlike the Bulls, the Warriors still have something to play for this season, so need Durant in the game (they lost to Milwaukee, 116-107). They've won five playoff series in the 20 seasons since.
