NEW YORK (AP) — Detroit's Rasheed Wallace was fined $25,000 Thursday by the NBA for using profanity and criticizing the officiating after a playoff game the night before.

After the Pistons' 106-102 loss to the Boston Celtics in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals, Wallace went on an expletive-laced rant targeting officials Mike Callahan and Kenny Mauer.

Wallace says players are "flopping all over the floor" and questions the call.

He says "it's all entertainment," and people should know that.

The Celtics lead the best-of-seven series 3-2.
