Miami Heat star gets hefty fine for 'excessive foul'

Published Add your comment

Miami Heat star Mario Chalmers was yesterday fined $15,000 for a foul deemed to be 'excessive' during his side's 102-97 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Heat recorded their fourth win of the NBA season so far at home to the Cippers, but Chalmers will be ruing what turned out to be a fairly expensive mistake.

The incident in question saw Chalmers hit the L.A forward Blake Griffin in his throat with his forearm, with 8:05 minutes gone of the third quarter.

After the game the foul was elevated from a common infraction to a Flagrant Foul 2, which meant that Chalmers received the fine as penance.

In the game itself Heat looked fairly comfortable in their victory, taking the last two quarters by scores of 24-17 and 26-24 to record the win. Dwayne Wade was particularly impressive during the fixture, scoring a team high of 29 points.
