Clippers player fined $25K for inappropriate language toward fan

Los Angeles Clippers forward Matt Barnes was fined $25,000 by the NBA on Tuesday for inappropriate language toward a fan.

The incident took place with 4:28 remaining in the second quarter of the Clippers’ 120-100 win over the Phoenix Suns on Sunday at US Airways Center in Phoenix. He finished the game with four points and five rebounds in 26 minutes.

Barnes has a history of drawing fines for his behavior on the court. In December, he was reprimanded by the league and docked $25,000 for throwing a water bottle and directing profane language at fans during a game against the Washington Wizards.

The 34-year-old Barnes is averaging 9.8 points per game this season.
