Cleveland Cavaliers head coach JB Bickerstaff, who should be getting a lot more attention as a coach of the year candidate, was fined by the NBA, the league announced Friday in a release.
Coach Bickerstaff vehemently disagreed with a block call on Cedi Osman and expressed that in a manner that earned him one technical and then quickly a second that ended his night early.
Here is why Coach Bickerstaff is $20,000 lighter in the wallet.
The Cavaliers were down by 17 at the time of the ejection and that may have played a role in his short fuse. The Cavaliers went on to lose the game 119-98.
