Bulls G Belinelli fined by NBA for obscene gesture

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - Chicago Bulls guard Marco Belinelli has been fined $15,000 by the NBA for making an obscene gesture in the fourth quarter of a 99-93 victory at Brooklyn in Game 7 of their first-round playoff series.

The league announced the penalty on Monday.

Belinelli made the gesture as he made his way back down the court after connecting on a 3-pointer that gave Chicago a 91-81 lead with 4:52 left in Saturday night's game.
