The Dallas Mavericks have been fined $50,000 by the NBA for violating bench decorum rules, the league announced Wednesday.

The violation occurred during the Game 7 victory against the Phoenix Suns, where the league alleges players and coaching staff stood away from the team bench area and encroached upon the playing court on numerous occasions.

The amount of the fine "reflects prior infractions of team bench decorum rules" during this year's playoffs, the league said.

The Mavericks were previously fined $25,000 by the NBA for violating bench decorum rules on May 6, following a Game 2 loss against the Suns.
