NEW YORK (AP) -- Mavericks guard Delonte West has been fined 25,000 by the NBA for jabbing his finger into the ear of Jazz swingman Gordon Hayward during the second quarter of Utah's 123-121 triple-overtime win over Dallas on Monday.
The NBA issued the fine Wednesday, calling it a "physical taunt."
West had been called for fouling Hayward away from the ball then walked after him to give him what he called a "wet willy."
West received a technical but was not tossed out of the game. Hayward walked away from the confrontation.
The Mavericks face Houston at home Wednesday.
