Paul fined $35K for making contact with official at end of Game 1

The Score

The NBA announced Monday that Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul has been fined $35,000 for "aggressively confronting and recklessly making contact with a game official" in the dying seconds of a Game 1 loss to the Golden State Warriors on Sunday.

Paul made contact with referee Josh Tiven while reacting to the official's out-of-bounds call with five seconds left in the game. The nine-time All-Star received his second technical foul of the contest and was automatically ejected.
