NBA fines Westbrook and Durant for getting chippy in Game four

The intense, playoff environment in the best-of-seven first circular series between the Dallas Mavericks and OK City Thunder created some chippy and physical moments in Game 4.

Kevin Durant was ejected for hitting Mavs rookie Justin Andersen in the head late in the game and on Sun was fined $15.000 by the NBA for the Flagrant Foul 2.

“I wasn't trying to damage him,” Durant said after the game. “Plenty of plays this season where I blocked shots love that from behind. Just unfortunate I fouled him over the head. It was a flagrant, even though I wasn't trying to intentionally foul him.”

Here is the play that caused Durant'south ejection and fine:

Durant wasn't the only Thunder player that got in a bit of trouble during the game.

Russell Westbrook got into a kerfuffle with Salah Mejri earlier in the game and then in the third quarter, he cursed at a fan sitting courtside.

And love Durant, Westbrook was fined for his actions. The NBA fined Westbrook on Sun $25.000 "for directing inappropriate speech toward a fan."

We'll look if these antics continue between the two teams in Game five on Monday.
