NBA: Timberwolves' Martin fined $15,000 for obscene gesture

Minnesota Timberwolves guard Kevin Martin was fined $15,000 on Monday for making what the NBA said was an obscene gesture during the 106-105 loss to the Chicago Bulls.

Minnesota Timberwolves guard Kevin Martin was fined $15,000 on Monday for making what the NBA said was an obscene gesture during the 106-105 loss to the Chicago Bulls.

Martin's actions occurred with 1:37 remaining in the fourth quarter of Saturday night's game.

The gesture came after Martin hit a 3-pointer. As he headed back to the other end of the court, Martin cupped his hands and held them just below his waist.

In the game, Martin hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 2.9 seconds left that seemingly gave the Wolves the win. He shot 9 of 14 from the field, including 4 of 6 from 3-point range, and hit all 11 of his free-throw attempts to finish with a game-high 33 points.
