NEW YORK -- Dirk Nowitzki and Raja Bell of the Dallas Mavericks were fined by the NBA on Tuesday for their conduct in Sunday night's playoff game at Sacramento.

Nowitzki was fined $5,000 for kicking a pile of towels with 2:30 left in the Kings' 99-83 victory. Nowitzki, angry after being issued a technical foul, was ejected.

Bell was fined $7,500 for verbally abusing an official after he was ejected with 1:14 left. Bell and Sacramento guard Bobby Jackson shoved each other and were separated by teammates. Jackson also was ejected, but he was not punished by the league.

"I got it, and I'll live with it,'' Bell said. "It's not on my mind right now. It's not up to me. It's done.''

The fines were announced by NBA vice president Stu Jackson.

The Kings' win tied the second-round series 2-2 entering Game 5 Tuesday.
