The NBA announced Saturday that it fined the Miami Heat $25,000 for the actions of players on the bench during Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Boston Celtics on Friday.
In a statement, the league referenced the Heat’s “team bench decorum,” noting that players “stood for an extended period in Miami’s bench area, stood away from the team’s bench and were on, encroaching upon or entering the playing court during live game action.”
The Heat defeated the Celtics 111-103 in Boston, thus forcing a Game 7 in Miami on Sunday night.
