NEW YORK (AP) — Kevin Durant was fined $15,000 by the NBA on Thursday for his comments about referee James Williams.

Durant criticized Williams after he was ejected from Golden State’s 123-112 victory over the New York Knicks on Tuesday night.

Durant apologized Wednesday, saying after watching replays that he acted like a “diva” and a “jerk” and vowed to apologize directly to Williams in person.
