Dallas Mavericks star guard Luka Doncic has been fined $35,000 by the NBA for directing an inappropriate and unprofessional gesture toward a game official, the league announced Friday.

Doncic took issue with the lack of a foul being called on Draymond Green and rubbed his fingers together toward an official with 1.7 seconds left in the fourth quarter of Dallas’ 127-125 home loss to the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday.

The gesture could be construed as Doncic suggesting the referees were paid to call the game in the Warriors’ favor.

A four-time All-Star, Doncic leads the Mavericks with averages of 32.9 points, 8.6 rebounds, 8.2 assists and 1.4 steals over 58 contests (all starts) this season.
