Kings' center fined for gesture after ejection
SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Kings center Brad Miller was fined $10,000 Sunday by the NBA for making an obscene gesture toward fans after being ejected in Game 5 against the Timberwolves.
Stu Jackson, the league's senior vice president of basketball operations, announced the fine before Game 6 in the second-round series.
Miller was ejected in the last minute of the third quarter in Minnesota's 86-74 victory over Sacramento on Friday.
Minnesota's Darrick Martin collided with Miller while fighting through a screen and hit him in the midsection. Martin fell face-first to the floor, and an enraged Miller went over and shoved him hard in the back. Referee Steve Javie ejected both.
