NEW YORK -- The NBA fined Phoenix Suns forward Amare Stoudemire and Charlotte Bobcats forward Tyson Chandler $7,500 each Sunday for posting to their Twitter accounts during games in violation of league rules.

Stoudemire's Twitter feed was updated during the Suns' 126-111 win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday, and Chandler tweeted a message the same night while the Bobcats were on their way to a 116-81 win over Toronto.

The league also fined Celtics forward Rasheed Wallace $30,000 for publicly criticizing officials following Boston's 116-103 victory over Toronto on Friday night.
