The NBA has fined New York Knicks coach Mike Woodson $25,000 for public criticism of the officiating.

Woodson said during a radio interview Thursday that the Knicks' Carmelo Anthony doesn't get the same calls as other superstars.

Woodson had been angry about some calls during the Knicks' losses at Detroit on Tuesday and at home against Indiana the next night. He complained that referee Dan Crawford "blew" a call during the loss to the Pistons.
