Lance Stephenson and Roy Hibbert Fined for Game 5 Flops


Lance Flop

In addition to his ear-blowing and huddle-joining antics, Lance Stephenson also pulled a hilariously awful attempt to draw a foul last night in Game 5. He dove hard, and he now owes Adam Silver’s office $10,000. He was fined $5,000 earlier in the series for a similarly terrible acting job, and the fine doubles on the second offense.

As you can see here, Roy Hibbert also got in on the act by pretending to be shoved while going for a rebound. It’s his first offense this postseason (and perhaps ever?), so he only has to pony up $5,000.

This wasn’t exactly De Niro and Pacino in their primes.

    You know, they could make some pretty hillarious parodies of the “where big happens” commercials using playoff footage from these two teams. Well earned fines.

    Because of this garbage by Lance the Pacers aren’t going to get any borderline calls in game 6. Moronic.

      I’m skeptical that will be the reason, but it will certainly feed the narrative when the home court edge flips to Miami. Every one of those 50/50 calls that get the home court tie breaker will be blamed on Lance.
