Marcus Smart fined $35K after his ejection vs. Thunder

The NBA announced Thursday afternoon that Marcus Smart has been fined $35,000 for "directing inappropriate language toward a game official."

The Celtics guard was assessed his second technical foul with 2:46 left in the third quarter of the team's 150-117 blowout loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Smart finished with seven points (3-of-6), four rebounds and eight assists, before reportedly yelling "you're fucking horrible" to an official -- while being held back by C's interim head coach Joe Mazzulla -- which led to his night ending early.

The Celtics look to bounce back when they face the Dallas Mavericks at American Airlines Arena tonight, as tip-off is at 7:30 ET on TNT.
