NEW YORK, United States, Dec 29 – Oklahoma City Thunder guard Dennis Schroder has been fined Sh2.5mn ($25,000) for intentionally making contact with a game official, the NBA announced on Saturday.

The German player received a technical foul for the incident, which occurred with 1:20 remaining in the third quarter of Oklahoma City’s 104-102 overtime victory over the Hornets in Charlotte on Friday.

Schroder, irked that officials failed to call a foul on Charlotte’s Cody Zeller, batted the forearm of referee CJ Washington.

Schroder came off the bench to scored 24 points in the victory.
