The NBA has fined Blake, filling in for the injured Steve Nash, $25,000 for directing inappropriate language toward a fan, the league announced. Blake reacted with 29.2 seconds left in the Lakers’ 105-95 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday at Staples Center. Blake had eight points and two assists in the game and the exchange began when the fan told Blake, “You need to knock down those open shots.” Blake used foul language shortly after he fouled out.
