• Rockets' Harden fined $5k for flopping

    Summary of 5 articles · Updated Nov 11, 2013
    Houston Rockets shooting guard James Harden just became the first player to be fined for flopping in this 2013-14 NBA season, and it took him just seven games to do it. Former Oklahoma City Thunder guard James Harden was fined $5,000 by the NBA on Monday for flopping in the Houston Rockets’ 107-94 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday. While Harden's the first NBA player fined for flopping this season, Washington Wizards point guard John Wall was the first to receive the one-strike warning that precedes a $5,000 rip. The first time the Rockets and Clippers met this season, James Harden turned in a defensive performance well worthy of public shaming. Harden was cited on Saturday during the fourth quarter of the Rockets' 107-94 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers, spurring the fine. The NBA announced Monday that Harden had run afoul of the league's anti-flopping guidelines for the second time this season in Houston's 107-94 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. The incident occurred with 4:00 remaining in the fourth quarter of Houston's 107-94 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday, Nov. 9 at Toyota Center.
