J.J. Barea has a reputation for being somewhat of a flopper. So did he become the flopped on Monday night? Let's go to the tape.
Barea was obviously frustrated on a night where he went just 1-for-11 from the field and finished with four points as the T-Wolves lost in a rout, 97-81. The incident, which happened in the fourth quarter with just more than eight minutes remaining, helped to spark a 16-5 Heat run. Miami used the momentum to cruise to the victory. But did Barea really deserve an ejection for this?
Decide for yourself:
Barea is known for being a flopper. He was fined back in January for his second offense of the 2012-13 season, and it appears that Allen may have overreacted to his contact on the play in question and given Barea a taste of his own medicine.
There's no word yet on whether Allen received a warning for flopping, but it seems like it could be an option for league officials.
