The NBA fined Los Angeles Clippers power forward Montrezl Harrell “for directing inappropriate language toward a fan,” according to Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune.

Harrell was caught by cameras telling a heckling fan to “shut the f–k up now” in the fourth quarter of the Clips’ 130-120 road loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday.

The moment occurred with 7:57 left in the game as T-Wolves guard Jeff Teague stepped to the line for a free throw. Harrell, who was on the low block, responded to a fan making remarks that were not caught on camera.

NBA Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations Kiki Vandeweghe announced the fine.
