ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer has been fined $25,000 for making incidental contact with an official.

The fine, announced on Monday by NBA vice president for basketball operations Kiki VanDeWeghe, followed Budenholzer’s technical foul and ejection from Saturday’s 109-97 loss at the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Budenholzer was given a technical for arguing a call. He bumped referee Ben Taylor after stepping on the floor and was quickly tossed.

Budenholzer said after the game any contact “was 100 percent unintentional.”
