NEW YORK -- Detroit Pistons coach Larry Brown was fined $15,000 by the NBA on Thursday for verbal abuse of an official, a day after he had to be
restrained during a postgame argument with referee Anthony Jordan.
Brown's confrontation with Jordan occurred following the Pistons' 89-82 loss to the Bulls in Detroit on Wednesday night.
"The guy wouldn't talk to me during the game, and I can't understand that -- I wasn't being discourteous," Brown said after the game. "Well, maybe I
was at the end, and I suppose I'll hear about that."
