Clippers center Montrezl Harrell was fined $25,000 by the NBA for “directing inappropriate language toward a fan” during a loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves, the league announced Tuesday.

Harrell was not assessed a technical foul at the time of the incident, which occurred with 7:57 remaining in Monday’s fourth quarter and Minnesota leading by six points.

It is the second time this season a Clippers player has been fined by the NBA for an interaction with a fan. Guard Patrick Beverley was fined $25,000 on Dec. 4 for bouncing a ball at a spectator during a game at Dallas.
