CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The NBA has fined Charlotte Hornets forward Miles Bridges $50,000 for throwing his mouthpiece into the crowd after being ejected from Wednesday night’s play-in loss to the Hawks in Atlanta.

Bridges was being heckled as he left the floor through the tunnel heading back to the locker room.

He threw his mouthpiece, hitting a young female.

Bridges apologized after the game and again following his exit interview in Charlotte saying he deserved any punishment the league handed down.
