The NBA has fined Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson $15,000 for an obscene gesture made toward a group of fans after Monday's game against the Nets, the league announced Thursday.

The 27-year-old flipped off fans as he walked off the court after Cleveland narrowly escaped with a 99-97 victory. It's not clear what sparked Thompson's gesture or if the fans were heckling him throughout the game.

Thompson's fine is relatively small in comparison to punishments a few other NBA players have faced in recent weeks. Warriors forward Kevin Durant was hit with a $25,000 fine last month for telling a fan to "watch the f—ing game and shut the f— up." Clippers guard Patrick Beverley also received a $25,000 punishment for throwing the ball at a Mavericks fan.

Thompson had a strong night before making the gesture, finishing with 19 points and 14 rebounds in the win against the Nets.
