NEW YORK (AP) — Grizzlies center Marc Gasol has been fined $15,000 by the NBA for using a profanity during a live television interview.
The NBA announced the fine Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time).
Gasol cursed during the interview after Memphis snapped an 11-game skid Monday night (Tuesday, PHL time) with a 95-92 win over Minnesota. It was the Grizzlies’ first win since Nov. 7 (Nov. 8, PHL time).
The center scored 21 points in the win, which ended an ugly stretch where Memphis fired coach David Fizdale on Nov. 27 (Nov. 28, PHL time).
