Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri has been fined US$35,000 for approaching the scorer’s table and directing inappropriate remarks toward a game official.
The incident occurred during Toronto’s 112-109 loss on Saturday in Miami, a heated game that saw Raptors rookie Christian Koloko ejected in the third quarter, and then fined US$15,000.
Miami’s Caleb Martin was also ejected, and then slapped with a one-game suspension after a shove that saw Koloko sail into the first row of the baseline seats.
The Raptors bounced back Monday to beat the Heat 98-90 in Miami.
