ServiceMaster offers to pay Fizdale fine

Memphis Grizzlies head coach David Fizdale has been fined $30,000 for public criticism of the officiating, it was announced today by Kiki VanDeWeghe, Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations.

"We don't get the respect that these guys deserve because Mike Conley doesn't go insane".

He clearly had not cooled off yet when he was asked the very next question about fighting back into the game in the second half. The Spurs were awarded 32 free throws in Game 2, with forward Kawhi Leonard taking 19 of them.

"Overall, 35 times we shot the ball in the paint and we had 15 free throws for the game".

"We don't get the respect that these guys deserve because Mike Conley doesn't go insane", said Fizdale, referring to the Grizzlies' starting point guard.

While Popovich did not comment on Fizdale's tirade specifically, he said it's more prudent for coaches, not players, to complain about the officiating. Maybe they'll collect enough money to pay the eventual fine for Fizdale. "He has class; he just plays the game".

While many were extolling the performance of MVP candidate Kawhi Leonard - he had 37 points and 11 rebounds, including a whopping 19-19 from the free-throw line - one person wasn't as impressed, Grizzlies first-year head coach David Fizdale. Prior to those match-ups and all First Round games, Grizzlies Playoff Plaza Parties will begin two hours prior to tip-off. He attempted 7.2 free throws per game during the regular season, an increase from 4.6 in 2016.

"Kawhi shot more free throws than our whole team, explain it to me", Fizdale said. "You've got to get your team going, and you do it whichever way is necessary, I guess".

"But, again, I'm not going to emphasize it". They've won many times.

That kind of confidence in your players goes a long way in the locker room. Rookie Thon Maker is getting more playing time as an energetic presence on defence, though veteran Greg Monroe is the better offensive option with his manoeuvrability in the paint and an ability to hit jumpers around the lane.

The first-year coach inferred there was a lack of respect from the referees for the Grizz that resulted in the Spurs attempting 17 more free throws than the Grizzlies. We had 15 free throws for the game!
