OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Golden State Warriors guard Jarrett Jack has been fined $25,000 by the NBA for "verbal abuse" of an official.

The league announced the fine Sunday.

The incident occurred at the conclusion of Golden State's 118-116 loss at the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night.

Some Warriors players were upset over the officiating late in the game, including the free throw disparity. The Lakers shot 50 free throws, while the Warriors had 16 attempts.

Golden State hosts San Antonio on Monday night before playing at Portland on Wednesday in its regular-season finale. The Warriors already have clinched a playoff berth, their first since 2007 and only the second in 19 years.
