Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook was fined $25,000 for directing inappropriate language toward a fan during Game 4 of the Thunder's first-round playoff series against the Dallas Mavericks.

Video shows Westbrook jawing with a fan sitting courtside during Saturday's game in Dallas, which the Thunder won to take a 3-1 series lead.

"I'm not even talking to you, bro," Westbrook said at the beginning of the 18-second clip before directing a profanity at the fan and his wife.

Warning: Video contains profane language.

Thunder forward Kevin Durant also took a financial hit after being ejected for a flagrant foul with 50 seconds left in the game. Durant was fined $15,000 for the foul.

A former UCLA standout, Westbrook is a five-time NBA All-Star and was the 2015 NBA scoring champion.
