Brooks fined for throwing mouthpiece

Sacramento Kings guard Aaron Brooks has been fined $25,000 for throwing his mouthpiece into the stands immediately following the Kings 104-102 road loss to the Utah Jazz on Nov. 23.
With 15 seconds left in regulation and the game tied 102-102, Brooks drove left on Jazz guard Jamaal Tinsley and was stripped. The Kings guard clearly thought he was fouled, as he argued with officials before Utah went on to win the game in the final possession.
The Jazz won on a Gordon Hayward jump shot with four seconds remaining.
