Washington, June 10 IANS | 1 month ago

Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade was fined $5,000 by the NBA for violating the league's anti-flopping rules during the Game 2 of the NBA finals.


The incident occured with four minutes nine seconds remaining in the second quarter of Miami's 98-96 win over the San Antonio Spurs Monday. Wade over-exaggerated the foul against Manu Ginobili, reports Xinhua.

Wade was holding the ball near the sideline when Ginobili took a swipe at it, brushing the ball. Wade threw his head back and Ginobili was called for a personal foul.

Game 3 is Tuesday night at American Airlines arena in Miami.

Wade has become the fourth player fined for flopping during the 2014 playoffs. The other three are Lance Stephenson, Roy Hibbert and Tiago Splitter.
