levied a

$35,000 against Los Angeles Clippers forward Paul George on Thursday
for his “home cooking

comments after Tuesday night’s loss to the Philadelphia 76ers.

George voiced disappointment after the 110-103 loss in Philly. He went
3 for 15, his second-worst shooting performance of the season, but
directed his frustration at the officials.

> “I thought we played well, we lost by seven,” George told
> reporters
> .
> “There was some home-court cooking tonight, to say the least."

> "I mean, it was 19  to 11," he added. "You all figure out
> what those numbers are. It was 19 to 11."

The 76ers are 25-2 at home and 9-19 away. (For reference, the Clippers
are 22-5 at home.) It was the fewest fouls called against a Clippers
opponent all season, per NBC Sports.

George violated the rule prohibiting public criticism of officials. He
must have known a big fine was coming since he’s uttered the exact
same phrase before. During the 2014 playoffs, while with the Indiana
Pacers, George made a similar remark to playing well against the Miami
Heat before going deeper:

> "I mean, you can't tell me we don't attack the basket as much as
> they attack the basket," George said. "You can't tell me we're not
> aggressive. Maybe we're too aggressive. But I feel like we're just
> as aggressive as they are attacking the basket and making plays at
> the rim. Maybe this was just home cooking."

fine this time around reflects the prior violation, NBA executive vice
president for basketball operations Kiki VanDeWeghe told ESPN
.
