NEW YORK (AP) — Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard has been fined $35,000 for a flagrant foul against Denver's Kenneth Faried.

The fine was announced Thursday by Stu Jackson, the NBA's executive vice president for basketball operations.

The incident, in which Howard made excessive contact with Faried above the shoulders, occurred with 5:02 remaining in the third quarter of the Lakers' 126-114 loss to the Nuggets on Wednesday.
