DALLAS (105.3 THE FAN) - Luka Doncic has been fined $10,000 by the NBA for kicking the ball during a game against the Indiana Pacers over the weekend.  

Doncic drew his second technical foul, with 3 minutes left in the third quarter for kicking the ball. 

After the game, Doncic told reporters he kicked the ball, but "was just trying to play soccer" and juggle the ball with his feet.

"I wasn't playing well. For sure, it was one of the worst games I've played this season, so yes I was frustrated," the 6-foot-7 Doncic said, joking that he briefly was playing soccer. "I didn't know I would be ejected because there are different rules in Europe."
