NEW YORK (AP) -Detroit's Rasheed Wallace was fined $25,000 Thursday by the NBA for using profanity and criticizing the officiating after a playoff game the night before.
After the Pistons' 106-102 loss to the Boston Celtics in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals, Wallace went on an expletive-laced rant targeting officials Mike Callahan and Kenny Mauer.
``The cats are flopping all over the floor and they're calling that,'' Wallace said. ``That ain't basketball out there. It's all entertainment. You all should know that.''
The Celtics lead the best-of-seven series 3-2.
