NEW YORK -- Cleveland Cavaliers coach Byron Scott has been fined $35,000 for publicly criticizing game officials.

NBA executive vice president Stu Jackson announced the discipline Sunday for the comments Scott made following Cleveland's 110-100 loss at Orlando on Friday.

Scott criticized officials Ed Malloy, Bennie Adams and Kevin Fehr. He bemoaned having to play a team where "there's five white jerseys and three with stripes. ... It's hard when you're playing against eight people."

He also complained about the crew's inconsistency.

Scott had never been fined in previous coaching stints with New Jersey and New Orleans.
