Toronto Raptors forward Justin Champagnie and Charlotte Hornets forward P.J. Washington were each fined $15,000 by the NBA on Thursday for an on-court shoving exchange during a game on Tuesday.

The incident, which prompted technical fouls and ejections for both American players, came with 1:46 remaining in the first quarter of Toronto’s 125-113 victory over visiting Charlotte.
