The NBA fined Toronto Raptors guard Fred VanVleet $15,000 for "making an obscene gesture" late in the fourth quarter of the team's 115-109 road win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday.

After hitting a corner three to seal the victory for the Raptors, the 27-year-old VanVleet ran up the court and used a celebration made famous by 76ers assistant coach Sam Cassell, dubbed the "big balls" dance.

The celebration has been banned since the 2010-11 season.
