The NBA on Thursday announced it has fined Cleveland Cavaliers center Tristan Thompson $15,000 for flipping off fans during a game earlier this week in Brooklyn.

Thompson directed his middle finger toward hecklers Monday night immediately
after the Cavs' 99-97 victory over the Nets at the Barclays Center.

Thompson tallied 19 points and 14 rebounds to power the Cavs and successfully
defended against Spencer Dinwiddie's 3-point attempt to win the game for the
Nets at the buzzer.

Thompson made the gesture as he walked off the floor.
