NEW YORK (AP) -- Oklahoma City forward Serge Ibaka has been fined $25,000 by the NBA for striking Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers in the groin area during Sunday's NBA game.
NBA executive vice president for basketball operations Stu Jackson announced the fine on Tuesday. The league also upgraded the Flagrant Foul 1 the Spaniard was given for hitting Griffin as the two battled for position in the paint to a Flagrant Foul 2, meaning Ibaka should have been ejected from the game.
The incident occurred with 1:52 remaining in the fourth quarter of the Thunder's 108-104 win over the Clippers at Staples Center.
The Bobcats force the turnover with aggressive defense and Jeff Taylor flicks it to Cody Zeller for the right-hand stuff.
|Terrific Tyreke Pass|
Tyreke Evans zips the laser bounce pass through the Pistons defense to Al-Farouq Aminu for the two-handed jam.
|Dynamite Durant |
Kevin Durant motors through the Grizzlies defense and pounds it down with authority.
|Zach on Both Ends|
Zach Randolph comes up with the steal and finds Mike Conley who gives it back to Zach for the tough bucket in traffic.
The Bucks force the turnover and run the break that ends with an alley-oop from Nate Wolters to Giannis Antetokounmpo.
