DeMar DeRozan will have to pay up for losing his temper in the final minutes of the San Antonio Spurs’ 117-103 Game 4 loss to the Denver Nuggets at AT&T Center on Saturday.
DeRozan was fined $25 thousand by the NBA for chucking a ball at referee Scott Foster after being called for an offensive foul with just five minutes left in Saturday’s match. He was ejected from the game as a result of his actions.
After the game, the guard told reporters he made the move out of “frustration.”
“I thought it was a bad call,” he said, per ESPN.
Take a look:
Maybe next time he’ll think before he makes a $25 thousand chuck.
