Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and coach Rick Carlisle have been fined by the NBA after they became upset with the officiating during a 95-86 loss to Oklahoma City on Wednesday.

Carlisle was fined $35,000 for kicking a ball into the stands with 9:34 left in the fourth quarter. He was ejected and apologized to Cuban and the fans right after the game. He said: "The incident where the ball got kicked into the stands, that can't happen."

Cuban was handed a $75,000 penalty for his critical remarks about the officiating following the home loss.

Cuban said he will match the NBA's fine with a donation to charity.

NBA executive Stu Jackson announced the fines on Friday.
