Testy: NBA fines Nuggets’ Evans $10,000

New York, NY (Sports Network) – Denver Nuggets forward Reggie Evans was fined
$10,000 by the NBA on Monday and assessed a flagrant foul penalty two for an
odd incident involving Los Angeles Clippers center Chris Kaman.

The infraction took place with 8:45 remaining in the second quarter of
Denver’s 100-86 loss Saturday night in Game 4 of their Western Conference
quarterfinal series.

Kaman accused Evans of reaching between his legs while going for a rebound and
also accused the Denver player of grabbing his testicles. According to a
published report, replays appeared to show that Evans reached his hand under
Kaman’s shorts during the play.

Kaman told the Los Angeles Times he considered punching Evans, but he didn’t
want to get thrown out of the game.

Evans was whistled for a technical on the play. Kaman was originally assessed
with a flagrant foul, but has since been downgraded to a technical foul.
