NEW YORK — Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant has been fined $25,000 by the NBA for directing obscene language toward a fan during a game in Atlanta.

The fine stems from an incident Friday night when a fan heckled Durant in the second quarter of the Nets’ 113-105 victory over Hawks.

In video taken courtside that was posted on social media, an off-camera fan can be heard yelling, “Durant, stop crying!” before Durant responds using multiple expletives.

Durant scored 31 points in the win.
