Nets fined $25K, assistant Vanterpool docked $10K for interference vs. Wizards
The Brooklyn Nets were fined $25,000 and assistant coach David Vanterpool was fined $10,000 for interfering with live play during Wednesday's contest against the Washington Wizards, the NBA announced Thursday.
Brooklyn could've been assessed a bench technical, but crew chief Ben Taylor said neither he nor his colleagues saw Vanterpool reach for the ball.
Kuzma didn't hold back when asked about the incident postgame.
"That was also horseshit too. Coaches should not be able to stand up. ... You've got (Nets head coach) Steve Nash blocking the ref's view. He can't see shit," Kuzma said, per SNY.
Brooklyn was up six points when Vanterpool interfered and held on for a 119-118 victory.
