NBA fines Raptors president $25K for confronting refs

As if the ending of Toronto's Game 3 against the Cleveland Cavaliers weren't bad enough for the Raptors, the team president found trouble over a halftime incident.

The NBA fined Raptors president Masai Ujiri $25,000 on Sunday for going on the court at halftime of the Saturday game to argue with officials.

Ujiri was reportedly angered by a call that was reversed late in the half, taking away a basket and a chance at a three-point play for Toronto.

The Cavaliers led by 10 points at the time the Serge Ibaka hoop was disallowed, with the referees ruling Cleveland's George Hill committed the foul before the shot was taken.

The play sparked dissent from Raptors head coach Dwane Casey, his assistant coaches and several Toronto players.

Cleveland went on to win 105-103 when LeBron James sank a bank shot at the buzzer, giving the Cavaliers a 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal series.
