NEW YORK (AP) -Boston Celtics forward Paul Pierce and Washington Wizards guard DeShawn Stevenson were each fined $25,000 by the NBA for making ``menacing gestures'' in playoff games this weekend.
Pierce was sanctioned for flashing a hand gesture toward Al Horford and attempting to stare him down in the fourth quarter of the Celtics' 102-93 loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday. Pierce had to be pulled back to the Boston bench by his teammates.
Stevenson was called for a flagrant foul when he swiped LeBron James' burgundy headband off late in the first half of a 100-97 loss to the Cavaliers.
