It was today confirmed that Lance Stephenson has been fined by the NBA to the tune of $10,000 following a flop during the Indiana Pacers - Miami Heat playoff game Wednesday night.
Stephenson's theatrical fall took place in the closing stages of Game Five as the Placers looked to close out the game and keep themselves in the series.
With just 8:23 minutes remaining Stephenson feigned contact from LeBron James as he sought to bring about the Heat player's sixth personal foul. The flop however did not fool either the game officials or the NBA subsequently.

Pacers teammate Roy Hibbert also received a fine from the NBA for flopping, with his simulation occurring with 5:18 left on the clock last night.
Despite their ill-judged attempts to draw fouls both Stephenson and Hibbert left the game happy Wednesday after the Indiana Pacers overcame the Miami Heat 93-90 to bring about Game Six.
Stephenson meanwhile drew attention for some fairly unorthodox defensive methods directed at LeBron James.
