NBA fines Denver’s Anthony

New York, NY (Sports Network) – Denver Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony was
fined $15,000 by the NBA on Wednesday for his actions during Tuesday’s loss
against the Los Angeles Clippers.

With just 1:11 remaining in the 111-109 defeat at the Staples Center, Anthony
threw a basketball into the stands. It was the second time Anthony has been
punished this season for throwing a ball into the stands as he was also hit
with a $5,000 fine in December for the same offense.

In 74 games this season, the Syracuse product is averaging 26.7 points, 5.0
rebounds and 1.12 steals per game for the Northwest Division-leading Nuggets.
