Blake Griffin has had another referee run-in.
The Pistons big man has been fined $15,000 for verbal abuse of a game official, the NBA announced Thursday.
The incident occurred at the conclusion of Detroit’s 100-94 loss to the Jazz on Monday at Vivint Smart Home Arena.

Griffin previously had a disagreement with an official in a Dec. 28 loss to the Pacers when he pulled out a tablet to argue his case.
