The NBA has levied hefty fines on both Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook for their involvement in two separate incidents in Saturday’s Oklahoma City Thunder-Dallas Mavericks Game 4.
Durant was issued a flagrant 2 foul for a blow to the head of Mavericks rookie Justin Anderson in the closing minute of the contest. That hard foul resulted in an immediate ejection, and the NBA also fined Durant $15,000 on Sunday.
Westbrook was hit with an even bigger fine for swearing at a fan during the third quarter. The NBA issued Westbrook a $25,000 fine for inappropriate language in the Thunder’s 119-108 victory.
Oklahoma City leads the first-round playoff series three games to one.
