Thunder's Dennis Schroder, Hornets' Terry Rozier fined $25K apiece

NEW YORK -- Oklahoma City Thunder guard Dennis Schroder was fined $25,000 by the NBA on Saturday for intentionally making contact with a game official.

Upset after a turnover he thought should have been a foul call on Cody Zeller late in the third quarter of the Thunder's 104-102 overtime victory in Charlotte on Friday night, Schroder approached referee CJ Washington at midcourt when play was stopped and grabbed at the official's wrist to demonstrate what Zeller had done to him.

Washington immediately gave Schroder a technical foul.

Charlotte guard Terry Rozier also was fined $25,000 for throwing the game ball into the stands at the end of regulation. He was assessed a technical foul.
