Harden fined 5k for flop against Griffin
James Harden has been hit with a $5,000 fine by the NBA for violating the league's anti-flopping rules for the second time this season.
According to the league, the flop occurred with four minutes remaining in the final quarter of of Houston’s 107-94 loss to the Clippers this past Saturday night. After Harden grabbed an offensive rebound, Blake Griffin cornered Harden on the baseline. Harden proceeded to lean towards his left before catapulting himself to the hardwood. At the time, it was a success, earning two shots at the free-throw line.
