Tony Allen fined $5K for flopping

Associated Press

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- The NBA has fined Memphis Grizzlies guard Tony Allen $5,000 for violating the league's anti-flopping rule during Game 2 of the Western Conference finals against the San Antonio Spurs.

Officials called a flagrant foul on Manu Ginobili for grabbing Allen's arm as the Grizzlies' guard drove to the basket with 26.1 seconds left in regulation Tuesday night. Allen hit the court and rolled over, holding his hands to his head. Replay showed Allen never hit his head on the court.

Allen hit both free throws, and the Grizzlies also got the ball to force overtime. The Spurs won 93-89 in overtime.
