San Antonio Spurs guard DeMar DeRozan has been fined $25,000 for throwing a basketball toward a game official and into the stands, the league announced Sunday.
The incident occurred late in the fourth quarter of Saturday's contest between the Spurs and the Denver Nuggets. DeRozan was assessed a technical foul and ejected for the throw.
DeRozan finished with 19 points, five rebounds, and five assists in 34 minutes of action as the Spurs fell to the Nuggets 117-103. The best-of-seven series now stands at two games apiece.
Game 5 will take place Tuesday in Denver at the Pepsi Center.
