Watch: NBA player ejected, fined after throwing basketball at loud-mouthed fan

Los Angeles Clippers guard Patrick Beverley has been fined NZ$36,000 by the NBA for throwing a basketball at a fan during a game in Dallas.

The fine was handed down this morning by league discipline executive Kiki VanDeWeghe.

The incident occurred with 9:10 remaining in the fourth quarter of the Clippers' 114-110 loss to the Mavericks on Monday.

Beverley and Mavericks guard Dennis Smith Jr. wrestled on the floor for a loose ball, their second loose-ball scramble of the game. After

Beverley got up holding the ball, he threw a bounce pass to a Mavericks' fan sitting courtside, which the fan caught. That drew a technical foul and an ejection.

He said after the game that the fan uttered an expletive about his mother.
