NEW YORK -

Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau was fined by the NBA on Sunday.

The NBA slapped Thibodeau with a $35,000 fine.

Stu Jackson, the NBA Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations, claims the fine was for critical comments Thibodeau made about officials.

The Bulls head coach accused Heat star LeBron James of flopping after being shoved by Chicago's Nazr Mohammed.

Mohammed was ejected from Game 3.

James received a technical foul for shoving Mohammed.

The Heat and Bulls will play Game 4 on Monday.
