The Associated Press is reporting that the WNBA has fined Minnesota Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve for her jacket-throwing outburst during Game Two of the 2012 WNBA Finals against the Indiana Fever.

WNBA director of communications Ron Howard confirmed the fine Friday, hours before Game 3 between the Lynx and Fever in Indianapolis. He would not disclose the amount.

During Wednesday's game, Minnesota's Lindsay Whalen was issued a technical foul after complaining about a no-call. Reeve got one, too, and she then took off her suit coat and threw it so hard that a trainer later evaluated her right shoulder.

In related news, USA Today has provided the world an animated GIF of the incident.
