Bulls G Belinelli fined by NBA for obscene gesture

Chicago Bulls guard Marco Belinelli has been fined $15,000 by

the NBA for making an obscene gesture in the fourth quarter of a

99-93 victory at Brooklyn in Game 7 of their first-round playoff

series.

The league announced the penalty on Monday.

Belinelli made the gesture as he made his way back down the

court after connecting on a 3-pointer that gave Chicago a 91-81

lead with 4:52 left in Saturday night’s game.
