The NBA has fined Allen Crabbe $15,000 for throwing the ball down court in Monday’s win against the Atlanta Hawks.
It was announced Wednesday.
Brooklyn Nets guard/forward Allen Crabbe has been fined $15,000 for violating the rule prohibiting players from throwing any item, including the game ball, at the basket stanchion, it was announced today by Kiki VanDeWeghe, Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations.
The incident, for which Crabbe was assessed a technical foul and ejected, occurred with 4:31 remaining in the fourth quarter of the Nets’ 110-90 win over the Atlanta Hawks on Monday, Dec. 4 at Philips Arena.
The incident happened after Crabbe missed a shot and threw the ball down court out of frustration with 4:31 remaining in the game. He was assessed a technical foul which resulted in his ejection.
Players have done these type of things before, but Crabbe added a little extra to it that warranted his ejection and fine. The Nets sharpshooter’s unerring aim hit the game camera ... squarely.
