MINNEAPOLIS — Minnesota Timberwolves guard Patrick Beverley was fined $30,000 by the NBA on Thursday because the league declared “inappropriate language,” including the “egregious use of profanity” in a media interview and a social -Media post following the team’s play-in game win.
Beverley was particularly emotional after the Timberwolves defeated the Los Angeles Clippers 109-104 on Tuesday. He played for the Clippers for the past four seasons and upon his arrival in Minnesota confidently predicted the Timberwolves would make the playoffs.
Beverly responded to the find on Twitter, posting a hands-over-the-face emoji with a link to the news of the fine.
Beverley was fined $25,000 by the NBA on Tuesday for inappropriate behavior towards a game official. He was thrown out of Minnesota’s final game of the regular season on Sunday for receiving two technical fouls that were charged against him for complaining about calls and no-calls.
The Timberwolves have earned seventh place in the Western Conference and play Game 1 of their first-round series in Memphis on Saturday.
