Patrick Beverley was fined $25,000 by the NBA for throwing a ball into the stands on Tuesday night.
Beverley did an underhand heave of a ball into the stands at Staples Center following the LA Clippers’ 112-102 win over the rival Lakers.

Beverley signed a $40 million deal with the Clippers during the offseason, so he’s probably not as concerned about the fine as he might have been in the past.
Yes, Beverley was just having fun and celebrating, but the league likely deems throwing a ball into the stands like that a safety concern and wants to protect its fans.
