Paul George blasted the officials following the Pacers’ 120-111 win over the 76ers on Monday night, a game from which he was ejected.

George got tangled with Philly’s Gerald Henderson with around five minutes left, resulting in double-technicals. A few minutes later, the two were ejected for a second incident in which Henderson caught George in the throat with an elbow. Henderson received a flagrant-2 foul for the play, while George was tossed for his second tech of the game.

After the game, George was critical of the refs for how they handled things.

“You’ll know how I feel about the officials and tonight I really have no faith in them,” George said via the Indy Star’s Nate Taylor. “I’ve been warning them all night what he’s going to do, stuff he’s doing and they allow the s— to go on.”

George was particularly upset about the second technical, which he received for seemingly no reason.

“I really don’t have no respect & nothing is there for the officiating. S—– officiating job,” said George.

George ended up playing 36 minutes and scoring 27 points, so he had plenty of an impact on the game despite the ejection. But his issues with the officials is nothing new, as he’s been complaining about them all season and can expect yet another fine for his comments.

He also might not be quite as innocent as he made it seem.
