Pro Sports Daily:
Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Byron Scott and Boston Celtics forward Chris Wilcox were fined $25,000 apiece by the NBA on Sunday for separate incidents. Scott was fined for public criticism of officiating following Cleveland's loss to the Timberwolves in Minnesota on Friday. The Cavs had nine free throw attempts in the game, and Minnesota had 35. "I'm trying to figure out a way to say this without getting fined," Scott said of the officiating. "It was that bad. It really was. It was that bad. I mean I understand we're playing in Minnesota, but 35-9, we went to the basket just as much as they did. I think we had 38 attempts in the paint to their 34, we get nine free throws, I think that speaks for itself." Wilcox received his fine for making an obscene gesture to fans during Friday's game against the 76ers. It occurred during a timeout with 8:47 remaining in the fourth quarter.

The NBA has announced a $25,000 fine for Chris Wilcox “for making an obscene gesture directed toward fans during a game.”
While the league didn’t say what the specific incident was… I’m pretty sure this is what did it:

Most NBA arenas feature a “kiss cam” on the big screen. One of the moments that often causes the arena to burst into a fit of giggles is when the cam features two members of the opposing team. Celtics Chris Wilcox didn’t find it that amusing when the Celts faced off agains the Sixers. The [...]
It all starts so innocently. In a running gag at several NBA arenas, and a near-nightly event at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, the video board begins showing happy-looking couples on the “Kiss Cam” as some classic love ditty plays over the loudspeakers, in an attempt to get the fans to kiss.
The routine is predictable. Start with a safe-looking couple to get a quick...

The Kiss cam panned to Wilcox and teammate, Jared Sullinger. Instead of bushing it off,...

If you’ve been to a NBA game, you know how Kiss Cam works. The camera pans around the arena stopping at presumably random couples encouraging them to kiss. The ordeal usually ends with the camera ending up on two players on the opposing team’s bench and the crowd is entertained while the two players either attempt to ignore the camera and have a chuckle about it themselves.

Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio tweeted that Cavaliers coach Byron Scott is hopefull both guards Dion Waiters and Kyrie Irving will return to action Tuesday against the Lakers.
Waiters has been day to day with ankle injury, missing the Cavs last 3 games.
Irving has been out since November 21 and a Tuesday return would bring the Cavs star back almost two weeks ahead of schedule.
