New York Knicks coach Mike Woodson was fined $25,000 for publicly criticizing officials, the NBA announced Friday.

Woodson made the comments during an ESPN radio interview on Thursday.

Toward the end of the Knicks' loss to the Indiana Pacers that dropped them to 3-8 on the season, Knicks guard Iman Shumpert brushed Pacers forward Paul George's elbow while he shot a 3-pointer and was called for a foul. Then, George bumped Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony while he was shooting the final shot of the game but no foul was called.

"I think Melo gets hit more than ever," Woodson said. "I've been at this thing 30 years. Sometimes I'm starting to wonder what's a foul and what's not a foul. What are you going to do? They can't see everything and I understand that. Sometimes they miss calls. I thought he got bumped on it. Hell, he didn't get the call so we have to move on."
