Los Angeles Lakers players Devin Ebanks and Andrew Bynum were each fined by the National Basketball Association for separate violations, the league said on Wednesday.
Ebanks was fined $25,000 for his actions before and after his ejection from the Lakers’ 119-90 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder in the opening game of their Western Conference semi-final series on Monday.
The Lakers forward was ejected for drawing a technical foul with 2:18 to play after walking up to a scrum for the ball when the whistle had already been blown.
Center Bynum was fined $15,000 for failing to make himself available to the media after the Lakers’ practice on Tuesday.
Game Two of the best-of-seven series between the third-seeded Lakers and the second-seeded Thunder is in Oklahoma City later on Wednesday.
