Dallas Mavericks guard Devin Harris has been fined $25,000 by the NBA for his actions toward a referee in Wednesday's game against the New Orleans Pelicans.

Per the NBA's release announcing the fine (via ESPN's Justin Verrier), Harris was fined for "aggressively pursuing a game official and failing to leave the court in a timely manner following his ejection" against the Pelicans.

Harris was ejected from the game, which the Pelicans won 121-118, in the second quarter after being assessed two technical fouls. 

Referee Ben Taylor called Harris for a personal foul against Jordan Crawford that Harris didn't agree with, and he shoved teammates out of the way in order to give the official a piece of his mind. 

Harris is averaging just 6.4 points per game for the Mavericks this season, his lowest scoring output since his rookie season in 2004-05.
