76ers Coach, Oubre Jr. Fined $50K Each for Outburst Over Missed Call
  • The NBA has fined Philadelphia 76ers coach Nick Nurse and guard Kelly Oubre Jr. $50,000 each for inappropriate conduct towards game officials.

  • The fines were a result of reactions to a non-call on a potential game-winning play by Oubre, who believed he was fouled by the LA Clippers.

  • Referee Kevin Scott admitted postgame that a foul should have been called, aligning with the 76ers' stance on the missed call.

  • Kelly Oubre Jr. has apologized for his behavior, which included verbal abuse and an obscene gesture, and recognized the necessity for personal improvement.

  • The Philadelphia 76ers, currently the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference with a 39-34 record, are pushing to secure a playoff spot without star Joel Embiid, who they hope to have back before the Play-In Tournament.

  • Amid the controversy, the 76ers are preparing for their upcoming game against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night.
