NBA fines Nets GM Sean Marks and owner Joe Tsai for actions following Game 4 loss to 76ers


Brooklyn Nets General Manager Sean Marks was clearly not happy with the officiating during his team's 112-108 Game 4 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers at the Barclays Center on Saturday afternoon.


"Brooklyn Nets General Manager Sean Marks has been suspended one game without pay and fined $25,000 for entering the Referee Locker Room postgame, it was announced today by Byron Spruell, President, NBA League Operations.


The incident occurred following the Nets' 112-108 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday, April 20 at Barclays Center.


Marks will serve his suspension Tuesday, April 23 when the Nets and 76ers play Game 5 of their opening round series at Wells Fargo Center."


Nets owner Joe Tsai was also fined $35K on Monday night for tweeting support of Marks' decision.


Marks' decision to enter the referee's locker room came following a chippy game between the two teams that saw two players -- Jared Dudley and Jimmy Butler -- ejected for pushing, and another -- Joel Embiid -- given a flagrant foul.
