Dwight Howard, Los Angeles Lakers center, has been slapped with a $35,000 fine by the NBA on Thursday for a flagrant foul on Denver's Kenneth Faried.
Howard was pulled from the game with 5:02 remaining in the third quarter. The Lakers suffered a 126-114 loss to the Nuggets on Wednesday evening. Howard was cited for a flagrant foul 2 after he forced his hand Faried's face causing him to hit the floor; however he stayed in the game.
Howard accepted the foul but he didn't agree with being ejected from the game.
''I was surprised it was a flagrant 2,'' he said. ''My intention was never to hurt Faried. I like the young fellow and my intention was just to foul. I come down the lane, somebody is going to foul me hard, put me on the free throw line and make me shoot free throws. It was the same kind of thing.''
''He saw my eyes. I wasn't going to back down. I wasn't going to try to float it,'' Faried said. ''I was going to try to dunk on him. He saw it. That's why he put his hand directly in my face.''
