Former Hawk Hinrich Fined $25,000

CHICAGO (AP) -- Chicago Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich was fined $25,000 by the NBA on Monday for throwing his mouthpiece into the stands during a playoff victory over the Miami Heat.

Hinrich fired his mouthpiece into the stands after picking up his fourth foul early in the third quarter, and got a technical. The guard finished with two points and five fouls in the Bulls' 96-91 win at United Center on Saturday.

Hinrich, a captain, averaged 16.6 points during the season.

A phone message left with the Bulls was not immediately returned.
