Grant Williams fined $20K for ball-punching incident vs. Warriors originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
Grant Williams is literally paying the price for letting his emotions get the better of him Saturday night.
Williams’ outburst occurred with 1:52 remaining in the fourth quarter after the Warriors called a timeout to empty their bench with a 17-point lead.
While his goal may have been to have the ball bounce off the backboard, it flew into the stands instead, prompting an immediate technical foul and ejection of Williams.
The incident capped a night of frustration for the Celtics, who entered San Francisco with the league’s best record but fell flat in Saturday’s 2022 NBA Finals rematch, reverting to several bad habits in a 123-107 defeat.
