Washington Wizards swingman Kelly Oubre Jr. was fined $25,000 by the NBA on Friday for kicking the ball into the stands at the end of the team's 109-101 Game 2 win over the Atlanta Hawks, according to the Washington Post's Candace Buckner

The NBA relayed video of the infraction: 

Oubre Jr. was limited to one point as the Wizards took a 2-0 series lead over the Atlanta Hawks, which represented a dip after he posted 11 points over the course of 19 minutes in Game 1. 

Washington will look for more of that Game 1 production Saturday evening when the series shifts to Philips Arena for Game 3 (5:30 p.m. ET, TNT).
