Lance Stephenson's antics continue to bother almost everyone, and the NBA is no exception. The league has fined the Pacers shooting guard $10,000 for his second flop violation of the postseason, both of which happened in the conference finals.

Stephenson also picked up a flopping violation in Game 2 for lying down on the court during the third quarter. Both were egregious flopping violations. Stephenson could use an acting coach if he's going to pull off those flops.
The league also fined Pacers center Roy Hibbert for flopping later in the fourth quarter. Here's the play:
