The NBA fined Tony Allen of the Memphis Grizzlies $5,000 for his flop in Game 2 in the Western Conference Finals against the San Antonio Spurs.
Allen was going up for a lay up late in the fourth quarter, when Spurs guard Manu Ginobili grabbed his arm and pulled him to the floor. Allen broke his fall, but he held his head with both hands for at least a minute.
The referees called a Flagrant 1 foul and awarded Allen two free throws, which he made and the Grizzlies got the ball back. Memphis guard Mike Conley then tied the game on the next possession.
The game eventually went to overtime, which the Spurs won 93-89 to take a 2-0 series lead.
Question now is, will the NBA rescind the flagrant foul the refs assessed to Ginobili?
