Brooklyn Nets forward Paul Pierce was fined $15,000 on Tuesday for his flagrant foul on Pacers guard George Hill during the team's loss at home to Indiana on Monday night.

On Tuesday afternoon, the league office called Pierce's foul "excessive and unnecessary contact" on Hill, according to the report via NBA.com. Pierce was cited for a Flagrant 2 foul on the play after a review from officials and, per league policy, was ejected.  The foul occurred when Pierce clotheslined Hill after chasing him down on a breakaway when Hill stole an errant pass that swingman Joe Johnson that was intended for guard Deron Williams.

The 36-year-old 10-time All-Star left the game with zero points on 0-for-7 shooting in 15 minutes. It was his first scoreless game since March 9, 1999.
