Grizzlies' Ed Davis fined $15,000 for 'unnecessary contact'
The NBA has fined forward Ed Davis $15,000 for "unnecessary contact" the Rockets' Donetas Montiejunas.
The NBA is docking at least one more player before the actual season begins on Tuesday.
The play occurred in the fourth quarter with Davis fouling Montiejunas hard near his head (happens at 1:50 in the above video). Davis was assessed a Flagrant 2 for the play and ejected.
This is one of many fines and suspensions the league handed out this preseason as it clearly tries to trim down a bit on unnecessary physicality.

He says he plans to become a bigger offensive threat, and odd numbers suggest he could
He continues to defend the system at every turn, putting any shortcomings on the players
