DALLAS -- Just before what could've been the last game of his coaching career, Lakers coach Phil Jackson was fined US$35,000 for comments about the officiating.

The NBA sent a release less than an hour before tipoff of Game 4 in the Lakers-Mavericks series on Sunday saying Jackson was being punished for statements made Saturday. He complained about officials allowing defenders to lift their legs and use their knees to shove big man Pau Gasol out of position.

Los Angeles went into the game down 0-3 in the series, facing elimination. Jackson has said he's retiring after this post-season.
