Bouncing ball off NBA ref costs $27,000

San Antonio Spurs All-Star guard Dejounte Murray has been fined $20,000 ($A27,400) by the NBA for bouncing the ball off the legs of a referee.

The incident occurred during the Spurs’ 118-105 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday night. After the Spurs were called for a foul in the lane on a Ja Morant drive, Murray delivered a bounce pass to the shins of the official who called the foul.

He was given a technical foul and ejected with 2:24 remaining in the fourth quarter. Murray scored 21 points and finished with a game-high eight assists. Morant scored a career-high 52 in the game.
