Noah has frustrating night, could face fine

MIAMI — Sunday was not a good night for Bulls center Joakim Noah at AmericanAirlines Arena.

Today probably won't be good to Noah's bank account.

Noah was caught on video using an expletive as well as an anti-gay slur toward a fan after he picked up his second foul early in Sunday's 96-85 loss to the Heat in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Noah could face a similarly large fine that Lakers star Kobe Bryant did last month. Bryant used the same slur Noah did and was fined $100,000. Bryant's remarks weren't directed at a fan, but to referee Bennie Adams after being called for a technical foul in a game on April 12.

Noah said he doesn't "even want to think" about the amount of his probable fine.
