Boston Celtics protect Isaiah Thomas has been fined $25,000 by the NBA for "coordinating unseemly dialect" at a Wizards fan amid Game 3 last Thursday.

The class made the declaration Wednesday, around three hours before Game 5 in Boston. The Celtics won 123-101 to take a 3-2 arrangement lead.

In the video, which was posted on Instagram, the Celtics' All-Star can be seen coordinating a foul comment at a fan at the Verizon Center.

As per the person who took the video, the fan was harassing Thomas, who was on the seat at the time, all through the amusement.

Thomas pointed at the fan and reacted with, "I will f - you up, and you realize that."

"Clearly there's a line that you can't cross and, eventually, get fined for," Boston mentor Brad Stevens said. "That is my response to it. I surmise that in the event that he could take it back he would."

The NBA at first said the episode occurred in Game 4 on Sunday yet later revised its news discharge.
