The NBA fined the Miami Heat $25,000 for violating bench decorum rules. The violations took place during Miami’s Game 6 victory over the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals.
The league fined the Heat because “on multiple occasions, several players stood for an extended period in Miami’s team bench area, stood away from the team bench, and were on, encroaching upon or entering the playing court during live action”.
The Dallas Mavericks were fined multiple times this postseason for similar behavior. The league hit Dallas with escalating fines for each occasion they violated bench decorum rules.
