It isn’t known if the fan said that might have caused him to make the gesture, Bleacher Report writes. The Pistons immediately called a timeout after Kuzma’s basket. The officials didn’t blow the whistle for a technical foul.

Bleacher Report informes that this marks the second notable fine for a player due to an obscene gesture during a game, with Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James being docked $ 15,000 after making a three-pointer against the Indiana Pacers for doing a celebration often attributed to former NBA player Sam Cassell.
