The NBA has fined Nuggets forward Jordan Hamilton $25,000 for yelling profane language at a courtside fan in Tuesday night's 112-100 loss to the Clippers, according to the league.
Hamilton was caught during the nationally televised game yelling profanities as he made his way back to the court after chasing a ball out of bounds behind the baseline. He finished with 16 points on 7-of-9 field-goal attempts, 4 rebounds and an assist playing at the Staples Center in his native Los Angeles.
Hamilton, 22, was the Nuggets' first-round pick (No. 26) in the 2011 draft. He is averaging 6.8 ppg, 3.0 rpg and 0.7 apg.
