Prior to this season, the NBA implemented a zero-tolerance policy toward inappropriate fan behavior:
"After high-profile incidents involving Russell Westbrook, DeMarcus Cousins, Kyle Lowry and others last season—including ones involving racist taunts—zero tolerance for abusive or hateful behavior is now to become the NBA's policy going forward. The league is changing and toughening its code of conduct for fans, especially putting those in closest proximity to the players and the court on alert that anything over the line will lead to ejections and possibly more."
Thomas posted 20 points and three assists prior to his ejection.
