John Wall has been critical of officiating – specifically that the Wizards don't get as many calls as they deserve – for much of the year. But after Friday's loss to the Jazz, he went a step further, accusing referees of costing the Wizards the game.
The NBA announced Sunday that Wall will be fined $15,000 for those comments.

The fine isn't great news, but it's hardly the most pressing problem to come from Wall's difference of opinion with officials.
Wall also picked up his 15th technical foul of the season on Friday night, which leaves him one away from a one-game suspension.
