The NBA charged Washington Wizards' Bradley Beal with a $15,000 fine after grabbing the throat of Orlando Magic's Evan Fournier in their game last Friday.

The incident happened in the 7:40 mark of the fourth quarter when Tomas Satoransky led a fast break and passed the ball to Kelly Oubre Jr. who attempts to dunk on Bismack Biyombo. But after Satoransky passed the ball, an offensive foul was called to him as D.J. Augustin established his position first and sell the call to the officials.

Oubre and Biyombo got a little entangled after the dunk attempt. Oubre shoved Biyombo's back and Biyombo retaliated and did the same to Oubre and that's where Beal and Fournier entered the Biyombo-Oubre altercation.

Beal grabbed Fournier's throat but there were no punches or blows happened. The rest of the players on the court started to help the officials to separate Beal, Fournier, Oubre and Biyombo.

After the officials got in control of the scuffle, they called four technical fouls to four of them.

According to CSN, the technical fouls cost $2,000 in each of the four players and the league reviewed the altercations and at there's a possibility that they can issue fines or suspensions.

 

The Washington Wizards won 94-91 against the Orlando Magic. John Wall led the team with 26 points, 10 assists, seven rebounds and three steals. His backcourt partner Bradley Beal finished with 14 points and eight assists and Otto Porter Jr. tallied 19 points, seven rebounds and two assists.

On the other hand, Serge Ibaka top scored the Magic with 19 points, eight rebounds and four blocks, Nikola Vucevic with a double-double 17 points and 17 rebounds and Evan Fournier with 11 points and four assists.

Both teams will face again each other on Dec. 6 at the Verizon Center in Washington at 7p.m. ET.
