Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart won't be suspended for what happened at the end of Tuesday night's loss to the Brooklyn Nets, but his wallet will be a little lighter.

Smart was fined $35,000 by the NBA on Thursday for "for confronting and verbally abusing the game officials." The league noted "the amount of Smart's fine also reflects his multiple prior violations of acceptable on-court decorum."

Here's a video of the incident: 

Smart scored 18 points for the Celtics in their 112-106 road win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night, but he didn't shoot well. The veteran guard shot 5-for-15 overall and 0-for-5 from 3-point range. He did, however, shoot 8-for-8 from the free throw line.  

Smart and the Celtics will be back in action against the Utah Jazz on Friday night at TD Garden.
