NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — New York Knicks guard Brandon Jennings has been fined $15,000 by the NBA for his actions toward a referee.

The league said Sunday that Jennings directed inappropriate language toward the official and failed to leave the court in a timely manner.

The incident came with 3:20 remaining in the Knicks’ 115-87 loss in Boston on Friday. The Knicks were called for six technical fouls, with Carmelo Anthony also getting ejected.
