INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The WNBA has fined Minnesota Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve for her coat-throwing outburst during Game 2 of the WNBA Finals against Indiana.

WNBA director of communications Ron Howard confirmed the fine Friday, hours before Game 3 between the Lynx and Fever in Indianapolis. He would not disclose the amount.

During Wednesday’s game, Minnesota’s Lindsay Whalen was issued a technical foul after complaining about a no-call. Reeve got a technical, too, and she then took off her suit coat and threw it so hard that a trainer later evaluated her right shoulder.

Indiana coach Lin Dunn said she thought Reeve deserved a second technical and automatic ejection. Reeve stayed, and the Lynx won the game 83-71 to tie the best-of-five series at 1-1.
