New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - The NBA fined Houston Rockets forward Corey Brewer $5,000 on Thursday for violating the league's anti-flopping policy.
Brewer was fined for a flop in Houston's 115-109 win over the Los Angeles Clippers in Game 2 of their semifinal series Wednesday night.
The Clippers were inbounding the ball late in the first quarter when Brewer was shoved by Los Angeles guard Lester Hudson, sending him crashing into the padded stanchion under the basket. Hudson was called for an offensive foul on the play.
Rockets guard Jason Terry was fined $5,000 last month for flopping during Game 2 against Dallas in the quarterfinals.
