Utah Jazz forward Derrick Favors has been fined $25,000 for throwing a ball into the stands during the third quarter of a 94-91 loss Thursday night against Dallas. The league announced the fine Saturday. The incident occurred with 24.8 seconds remaining in the third in a physical game that saw four technicals called. Favors, a second-year pro, acknowledged he lost his cool after getting called for another offensive foul. Jazz point guard Earl Watson received a technical shortly before Favors' ejection. Watson was standing up for a teammate when Dallas star Dirk Nowitzki smacked the basketball out of Favors' hands. Nowitzki wasn't penalized for his actions, though he did receive a technical at the end of the first half for spiking the ball hard onto the court.
