PHOENIX (AP) The NBA has fined Jared Dudley of the Phoenix Suns and Brandon Jennings of the Washington Wizards $35,000 apiece for their roles in an altercation during a game Tuesday night in Phoenix.

The fines were announced Thursday.

Dudley was fined for ''escalating an altercation'' by confronting and giving a head-butt to the Wizards' Jason Smith after Smith knocked down the Suns' Tyler Ulis with a hard screen.

Jennings was fined for ''making menacing gestures'' during the incident. Video replays showed Jennings imitating that his fingers were a gun.

Both players were ejected in the first-quarter incident. The Wizards won the game 131-127.
