Lakers' Ebanks and Bynum each fined by the league

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.
