Wizards' Bradley Beal fined $25K for contact with official

The NBA announced Monday that Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal was fined $25,000 for making contact with a referee over the weekend.

The contact occurred Saturday in the Wizards' 127-113 win over the visiting Indiana Pacers.

The Pacers tried a long pass up court, and Beal leapt to get his left hand on it, knocking it out of bounds. His momentum brought him toward the official on the sideline, and Beal appeared to shove him with his right hand into a row of empty seats next to Washington's bench.

A three-time All-Star, Beal is averaging 22.5 points and 5.2 assists per game in just 33 appearances (all starts) this season.
