The NBA slaps a $25,000 fine against the Dallas Mavericks upon committing a team bench decorum in their Game 2 second-round series loss against the Phoenix Suns. 

In a release, the league has noted that several Mavs players and key personnel stood away on their bench. In addition, many were seen on court or encroaching while the match is still ongoing 

Both Dallas and Phoenix are set to face in Game 3 of their second-round series this Friday. The Suns hold a 2-0 upper hand and are looking to advance to their second-consecutive Conference Finals. 

The winner of the series will face either the Memphis Grizzlies or Golden State Warriors.
