Jan 21 (Reuters) - Utah Jazz forward Derrick Favors has been
fined $25,000 for throwing a ball into the spectator stands
during a game against the Dallas Mavericks, the National
Basketball Association (NBA) said on Saturday.
Favors was penalized for his actions with 24.8 seconds left
in the third quarter of Utah's 94-91 loss to the NBA champions
in Salt Lake City on Thursday.
Four technical fouls were called in what proved to be a
hot-tempered encounter and Favors was ejected after throwing the
ball into the stands to protest a call.
"I was pretty frustrated," Favors told reporters. "I let my
emotions get to me."
