Lance Stephenson picks up 2nd flopping violation of playoffs

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers shooting guard was docked another $10,000 for his second violation of the Eastern Conference Finals.

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.

The play occurred in the fourth quarter, when Lance went down in a heap after running into LeBron James in transition. No foul was called on the play, which eventually ended in a wild Stephenson three-point attempt that missed.

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:

The Pacers have been fined more money for flopping than any other team since the flopping rules were introduced last season.
