The NBA has fined Denver Nuggets forward Kenyon Martin $25,000 for throwing Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki to the floor in the opener of their second-round playoff series.

Martin was also assessed a flagrant foul 1 for the contact, which occurred with 5:51 left in the first quarter of Sunday's game, after Nowitzki had scored Dallas' first 10 points on 5-for-5 shooting.

Nowitzki said after the game he didn't have a problem with the foul, calling it "just a hard playoff foul."

After making his first six shots, Nowitzki was hounded and went 6-for-16 the rest of the way to finish with a game-high 28 points in Dallas' 109-95 loss.
