Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade has been fined $5,000 by the league for his obvious flop against Manu Ginobili during Game 2 of the 2014 NBA Finals.
Wade drew a foul on the San Antonio Spurs guard during the second quarter of the Heat’s 98-96 win Sunday night, reacting dramatically to Ginobili’s attempt to swipe the ball out of his hands. Wade acted as if he had been struck in the face, and Ginobili was whistled for his third foul on the play.
It was the fifth flopping fine handed out by the NBA during this postseason.
The Heat’s win over the Spurs evened the series at one game apiece. Game 3 will be played Tuesday night in Miami.
