NBA fines Bulls’ Noah for pushing fan


NEW YORK (AP) — The NBA fined Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah $25,000 for pushing a fan at halftime of the Bulls’ loss to Cleveland in Game 2 on Wednesday night.

Also Friday, Los Angeles Clippers forward Matt Barnes was fined $50,000 by the NBA on Friday for directing inappropriate language at a courtside fan who turned out to be Houston star James Harden’s mother.

Barnes made the comments to Monja Willis during the Clippers’ Game 2 loss in Houston on Wednesday night.

“We’ve made our peace,” Barnes said Friday before Game 3 in Los Angeles. “We’ve spoken twice since the incident. She said something, I said something back. I’ve heard speculation of what I’ve likely said, which is crazy.”
