Milwaukee Bucks forward Larry Sanders has been fined $50,000 by the NBA for "using a derogatory and offensive term and publicly criticizing the officials," the league announced on Sunday.
With 2:44 remaining in the Bucks' home loss to the Heat on Friday, Sanders said something to the referees and was immediately ejected.
Sanders also criticized the officiating in his postgame comments.
It was the second straight game that Sanders was ejected for complaining about the officiating.
Bucks head coach Jim Boylan said he would talk to Saners about the issue.
