Minnesota Timberwolves guard Patrick Beverley was fined $30,000 by the NBA on Thursday for what the league said were “inappropriate statements,” including “blatant use of profanity” in an interview with media and a social media post after the team’s victory in the qualifying match.

Beverley was particularly emotional after the Timberwolves beat the Los Angeles Clippers 109-104 on Tuesday. He played the past four seasons for the Clippers and confidently predicted upon arriving in Minnesota that the Timberwolves would make the playoffs.

Beverley was just fined $25,000 by the NBA on Tuesday for inappropriate conduct toward a game official. He was ejected from Minnesota’s final regular season game on Sunday for receiving two technical fouls, which were called on him for complaining about calls and no calls.

The Timberwolves won the No. 7 seed in the Western Conference and play Memphis on Saturday in Game 1 of their first-round series.
