Utah Jazz F Favors fined $25,000

Published Jan. 21, 2012 12:00 a.m. ET

Utah Jazz forward Derrick Favors has been fined $25,000 for throwing a ball into the stands during the third quarter of a 94-91 loss Thursday night against Dallas.

The league announced the fine Saturday.

The incident occurred with 24.8 seconds remaining in the third in a physical game that saw four technicals called.

Favors, a second-year pro, acknowledged he lost his cool after getting called for another offensive foul.


Jazz point guard Earl Watson received a technical shortly before Favors' ejection. Watson was standing up for a teammate when Dallas star Dirk Nowitzki smacked the basketball out of Favors' hands.

Nowitzki wasn't penalized for his actions, though he did receive a technical at the end of the first half for spiking the ball hard onto the court.
