Isaiah Thomas’ wallet just got a little lighter.
The Boston Celtics point guard was fined $25,000 by the NBA for “directing inappropriate language toward a fan,” the league announced Wednesday.
The incident occurred during Game 3 of the Celtics’ second-round NBA playoff series against the Washington Wizards.
An Instagram video showed Thomas getting into an argument with a Wizards fan from the bench. Thomas appears to tell the fan, “I will (expletive) you up, and you know that.”
Thomas and the Celtics have bigger things to worry about, though, as they suffered back-to-back blowout losses to the Wizards at Verizon Center, and now find themselves tied 2-2 with the Wizards in the best-of-seven series.
Game 5 will be back at Boston’s TD Garden on Wednesday night.
