Saying he felt the Miami Heat maybe got “home cooking,” Indiana Pacers star Paul George cited officiating as a difference-maker in his team’s Game 4 loss in the Eastern Conference finals, putting him at risk for drawing a fine from the NBA.

After George made several references to unbalanced officiating, he was asked directly if he thought the Heat benefited from favorable calls on their home floor.

He responded with a mix of sarcasm and frustration, saying, “What do you think?”

“It’s just demoralizing when (the free throws are) lopsided,” George said. “I mean, I’m sorry to say, but that was the case. How rare is it we shoot 50 percent, turn the ball over around 13 or so times, outrebound a team, and lose a ball game?
