LeBron James has been fined $25,000 by the NBA for kicking a water bottle during Cleveland’s victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The announcement was made Thursday by Stu Jackson, the league’s executive vice president of basketball operations.

The NBA says James kicked a water bottle with 12.4 seconds left in the first quarter of the Cavaliers’ 109-95 win Wednesday night. Last year’s league MVP, James was rested for the entire fourth quarter as Cleveland protected a big lead. He finished with 12 points, 11 assists and six rebounds in 31 minutes.
