Mavs' Harris fined $25,000 for haranguing official

Devin Harris of the Dallas Mavericks is fouled by Andre Roberson of the Oklahoma City Thunder during game four of the Western Conference Quarterfinals of the 2016 NBA Playoffs at American Airlines Center on April 23, 2016 in Dallas, Texas

Dallas Mavericks guard Devin Harris was fined $25,000 by the NBA on Friday for the aggressive tirade he directed at a game official when he was ejected from a game on Wednesday.

Harris was fined for "aggressively pursuing a game official and failing to leave the court in a timely manner following his ejection," from the Mavs' 121-118 loss to the Pelicans in New Orleans.

Harris lost his cool when official Ben Taylor whistled him for a personal foul when he collided with Pelicans guard Jordan Crawford.

He was quickly assessed a technical foul, then had to be restrained by teammates as he advanced toward Taylor, drawing a second technical and automatic ejection with 9:08 remaining in the first half.

"I've never seen him that upset," said Dallas coach Rick Carlisle, who also was called for a technical foul after Harris was tossed from the game.
