Memphis Grizzlies centre Marc Gasol, centre left, and forward JaMychal Green, centre right, celebrate with teammates after an NBA basketball game against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday.


Grizzlies centre Marc Gasol has been fined $15,000 by the NBA for using a profanity during a live television interview. The NBA announced the fine yesterday.

Gasol cursed during the interview after Memphis snapped an 11-game skid Monday night with a 95-92 win over Minnesota. It was the Grizzlies' first win since November 7.

The centre scored 21 points in the win, which ended an ugly stretch where Memphis fired coach David Fizdale on November 27.
