Los Angeles Lakers point guard Steve Blake was fined $25,000 today for "directing inappropriate language" at a courtside fan, the National Basketball Association (NBA) said.

Blake's remarks toward the fan occurred with 29.2 seconds left in the fourth quarter of the Lakers' 105-95 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers last Friday at the Staples Center.

The nine-year NBA veteran hit two of six shots and had eight points and three turnovers before fouling out and arguing with a man in the first row.

How do you expect the Breakers to perform in this season's Australian NBL?

Last season was a blip, they'll be champions once again

They'll go close to another title, beaten finalists I'd say

Playoffs for sure, but can't see them going any further

Not too excited, they'll miss the playoffs again
