The NBA has fined Houston point guard Patrick Beverley $25,000 for an incident with a Thunder fan following OKC's 115-113 win in Game 3.

Now, as the Rockets and Thunder prepare for Game 4 on Sunday, Beverley himself has been fined $25,000 by the National Basketball Association. After the game, Beverley approached Scaramucci, who was sitting behind the basket, and they got into a heated discussion.

Beverley immediately began to complain to the referees and point at Scaramucci. "There is no need for blatant disrespect".

Beverley declined comment about the situation on Saturday and said he would "talk more after the investigation is done".

Rockets forward Sam Dekker went to pull Beverley away, and he left the court as fans yelled at him.

Asked how the fan responded to him, Beverley said, "He shrugged his shoulders like, "Whatever". his wife puts his finger in my face". Be professional, no curse words. Four years ago, he was involved in a play that resulted in Russell Westbrook getting hurt and missing the rest of the season. He also said he believed the fine was excessive, that he wasn't concerned if the same fan was back in the same seat for Game 4 and he wasn't intimidated.

"Do you address it the way I addressed it - hey man, there's no need for name-calling - and if you do address it, should you be fined $25,000 for doing that?" I had to have a police officer in front of my house.
