NEW YORK -- Indiana guard Lance Stephenson has been fined by the NBA for violating the league's anti-flopping rules for the second time this season.

The $5,000 penalty was announced on Tuesday.

The violation occurred with 1:37 left in the Pacers' 102-94 victory at Golden State on Monday.

The NBA instituted a crackdown on flopping prior to last season.
