Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr has been fined $25,000 for his tirade during Monday's loss to the Sacramento Kings.

Kerr was ejected late in the second quarter of a 111-98 loss after getting consecutive technical fouls from referee Jason Goldenberg.

Kerr appeared initially upset about a continuation call that went Sacramento's way, then erupted after Golden State did not receive a similar call. He angrily walked onto the court after the second technical and yelled at Goldenberg before leaving.

NBA executive vice president of basketball operations Kiki VanDeWeghe announced the fine Wednesday, saying it was officially for verbally abusing a game official and failing to leave the court in a timely manner following his ejection.
