Following game five of their best-of-seven series against the Denver Nuggets, Warriors head coach Mark Jackson accused the Nuggets of dirty play and targeting his star, Stephen Curry. George Karl and the Nuggets snapped back, and there have been a few words thrown around on each side since then.
Apparently, the NBA is siding with the Nuggets on this one. As reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, Mark Jackson has been fined $25,000 by the NBA for an “attempt to influence the officiating.”
