Isaiah Thomas fined $25,000 for making ‘inappropriate contact’ with referee

Isaiah Thomas referee

The NBA had no sympathy for Isaiah Thomas’ run-in with a referee on Friday night.

In the second minute of the Washington Wizards’ game against the Portland Trail Blazers, Thomas was trapped by the defense and started to fall towards the sidelines. He ended up pushing a referee as he was escaping the defense’s trap and got ejected.

On Saturday, the league announced that Thomas had been fined $25,000 for the incident.

Could Thomas have avoided making contact with the official? That’s a good question. His push of the referee did seem excessive.

Thomas has now been fined twice in the past few weeks, as he also got fined for going into the stands to confront a Philadelphia 76ers fan.
