Jackson fined $25,000

Detroit Pistons point guard Reggie Jackson has been fined $25,000 by the NBA for directing inappropriate language towards an Oklahoma City Thunder fan last week. 

On November 27, Jackson returned to Oklahoma for the first time since he re-signed with the Pistons on a five-year, $80 million deal in July. During that game, Jackson was caught on video using vulgar language when interacting with a Thunder fan. 

Jackson was booed throughout the game, which his side lost 103-87, and finished with 15 points despite a poor shooting night that saw him make only four of the 16 shots he attempted. 

Jackson was initially traded to the Pistons in a three-team deal in February, but opted to remain at Detroit as he he said he was tired of coming off the bench during his time with the Thunder. 

The 25-year-old, who is in his fifth NBA season, is currently averaging 19.1 points, 4.4 rebounds, 6.2 assists and 1.1 steals per game.
