Nuggets F Jordan Hamilton was penalized by the NBA for cussing at a fan during the team's loss to the Clippers on Christmas Day.

Denver Nuggets forward Jordan Hamilton was fined $25,000 by the NBA on Wednesday for using inappropriate language toward a fan during the team's game against the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday, according to Yahoo! Sports' Marc J. Spears.

With his team trailing by 18 points late in the fourth quarter, Hamilton was fouled on a layup attempt and proceeded to verbally vent his frustration toward a fan in or around the first few rows behind the Nuggets' basket.

Despite the incident, Hamilton played well in Denver's 112-100 loss, finishing with 16 points on 7-of-9 shooting in 17 minutes. In his second year out of Texas, Hamilton is averaging 6.8 points and 3.0 rebounds per game while appearing in 19 contests and getting one start.

Hamilton and the Nuggets (15-14) return to the floor on Wednesday, hosting the Clippers' crosstown rivals, the Los Angeles Lakers (14-14), at the Pepsi Center in Denver, CO. Tip-off is slated for 7 p.m. MT.
