DeMar DeRozan fined for throwing basketball at referee
DeMar DeRozan had to know he’d face some discipline for his actions during Saturday night’s Game 4 after throwing a basketball at a referee, and the league has come down quickly.
DeRozan was fined $25,000 for his actions, but will face no further consequences for his ill-advised basketball toss at referee Scott Foster in his team’s Game 4 loss.

The discipline seems about right. DeRozan was ejected for his actions and he’ll be lighter in the pocketbook for it, but that’s about it. The Spurs will hope for a better performance in Game 5, and DeRozan will aim to keep his composure a bit better.
