NEW YORK -- Allen Iverson was fined $10,000 by the NBA on Tuesday for a heated exchange the Philadelphia guard had with an official following the 76ers' loss to the Chicago Bulls on Saturday.

Iverson, upset about calls, challenged referee Marc Davis after the 94-88 loss. Iverson had to be restrained by teammates, and a few minutes later was seen heading in the direction of the referees' dressing room before general manager Billy King interceded and calmed him down.

At practice on Monday, Iverson said he expected to be fined or suspended for his comments to Davis.

"From the history of it, I suspect something will happen to me," said Iverson, who did not practice with the team because of a thumb injury. "I would not be surprised if they decide I was wrong and should be punished."
