Kendrick Perkins Fined $10,000

– Kendrick Perkins was fined $10,000 by the NBA for a flagrant foul on Detroit’s Jason Maxiell that led to the Boston Celtics forward to be ejected on Friday night.

Perkins said Sunday he would not appeal.

"I think it’s right. I think justice was served," he said. "I can pay that fine."

Perkins was ejected in the fourth quarter of Friday’s game between Boston and Detroit after being called for a flagrant foul with 5:56 to play and the Celtics leading 70-65.
