League fines Cavs' Thompson $15K

Tristan Thompson flipped off heckling Nets fans after Cavs' road win

Thompson helped the Cavs get their fifth win of the season in more ways than one against the Nets.

The NBA announced it would be fining the player for the middle-finger gesture made towards hecklers at the end of the Cavs' victory at the Barclays Center.

Thompson tallied 19 points and 14 rebounds to power the Cavs and successfully defended against Spencer Dinwiddie's 3-point attempt to win the game for the Nets at the buzzer.
