NEW YORK (AP) - The NBA has fined Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban $100,000 for confronting referees and using inappropriate language toward them.

Cuban confirmed the fine on his Twitter feed, saying he couldn't let Commissioner David Stern leave without a proper farewell.

Cuban went onto the court and yelled at the officials after the Mavericks blew a 17-point lead in the final 5 minutes of a 129-127 loss at the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday.

He tweeted that he would donate an equal amount to charity once he reached 2 million followers, which he is about to reach.

Cuban has been fined more than $1.5 million by the league.
