CHICAGO – The NBA has fined Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau $35,000 for comments he made about the officiating following Friday's loss to the Miami Heat in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.

The league announced the fine Sunday.

Thibodeau was upset that Nazr Mohammed got ejected for shoving LeBron James to the floor and accused the Heat's superstar of flopping. He also said calls weren't going to go the Bulls' way.

The Heat won the game to go up 2-1 in the series. Game 4 is Monday at the United Center.
