The NBA announced Thursday evening that it has fined Dwight Howard $25,000 for tossing a ball at a fan in Wednesday night’s 123-120 Rockets loss to the Dallas Mavericks.

The Rockets were leading 116-111 at the moment with 2:54 left. Howard was called a technical foul as well, as the Mavericks would eventually come back and take the win.
