The NBA on Saturday announced that they have fined Los Angeles Lakers guard Rajon Rondo $35,000 for the following reasons:
– Making unsportsmanlike physical contact with Oklahoma City Thunder guard Dennis Schroder
– Verbal abuse of a game official
– Failing to leave the court in a timely manner upon his ejection.
Rondo received a Flagrant Foul 2 and was ejected, early 4th quarter this past Thursday, on the road in OKC.
