Wizards' Wall fined $25,000 for interaction with official

WASHINGTON (AP) The NBA fined Washington Wizards guard John Wall $25,000 on Wednesday for inappropriate interaction with an official and failing to leave the court in a timely manner after he was ejected.

The incident happened in the final minute of the Wizards' 114-106 loss to the Houston Rockets on Monday night.

Wall was ejected after getting his second technical foul of the game with 33.3 seconds left.

Official Marc Davis said he gave Wall a technical foul for bumping him. Davis said he told Wall to ''watch himself'' and that Wall ''looked over his shoulder and used vulgarity and inappropriate language.''
