Orlando Magic guard/forward Terrence Ross and guard Michael Carter-Williams were each fined $15,000 by the NBA on Thursday.

The fines stemmed from "verbal abuse of game officials and failing to leave the court in a timely matter," according to Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations, Kiki VanDeweghe.

The violations occurred immediately following the Magic's 115-112 loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday and began when Ross missed a floater in the final seconds that could have given Orlando a one-point lead. The miss was rebounded by Atlanta's John Collins, who was then fouled by Carter-Williams.

Collins made both free throws to seal the 115-112 victory.

After the final buzzer sounded, Ross approached the officials in dismay, thinking he was fouled on his go-ahead attempt. Carter-Williams' frustration stemmed from a foul call assessed on him moments earlier for contact against Atlanta guard Trae Young.

Ross finished the game second on the team with 28 points, while Carter-Williams added 20 points, six rebounds and six assists.
