The NBA has fined Golden State Warriors guard Jarrett Jack $25,000 for voicing his frustrations over foul calls in Golden State’s loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.

TrustedPayday.com: LOGOThough Jack looked upset with several calls made by the referees throughout the game, the league did not specifically cite an incident that led to the fine. He showed his frustration with the refs when he was bumped to the ground while reaching for a loose ball but no whistle was blown.

The 29-year-old guard was also seen voicing his opinions to an official about the game after the conclusion of the 118-116 loss to the Lakers.

The Lakers shot 50 free throws in the game on 33 fouls by the Warriors. Golden State shot 16 free throws on 17 fouls. The Warriors gave up a nine-point lead in the fourth quarter and had a clean look at the basket for the last shot of the game, but ultimately ended with a drama-filled loss.

Jack finished the game with six points, eight rebounds and five assists.
