Brooklyn, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Brooklyn Nets forward Paul Pierce was fined $15,000 for his flagrant foul on Indiana's George Hill.

Pierce was ejected in the third quarter of the Nets' 103-86 loss on Monday for a flagrant 2 foul.

Hill picked off a bad pass and raced down the court for a layup, but was clotheslined by Pierce on the play.

After a review, referees ruled it a flagrant 2, which carries an automatic ejection. The NBA said Tuesday that Piece made "excessive and unnecessary contact."
