MIAMI – The NBA didn’t care for Jimmy Butler’s celebration after a Max Strus jumper during Game 5 of Miami’s first round series against the Atlanta Hawks.
The league fined Butler $15,000 for what it called an “obscene gesture.”
The league also fined the Heat organization $15,000 for posting the act on social media.
Butler was sidelined with a sore knee and did not play in the closeout game against the Hawks.
The Heat will host either Toronto or Philadelphia in the second round of the NBA Playoffs. Game 1 will be Monday at FTX Arena.
