During last night’s game 1 against the Houston Rockets, The GSW’s point guard Steph Curry committed a flop move.
The flop is something that was commonly used by shooters in the league with the attempt to earn a foul call and some free-throws.
The flop is also something that the league made a new rule for this season too. The new rule made “flopping” a big no-no and a fine and even if the refs don’t see it during the game, the league office sees when they review plays afterwards.

So after the reviewing of the plays, Curry has now been fined $5,000 by the NBA for his flop on his pull-up 3 pointer last night.
During the Rockets/Clippers games, both Corey Brewer and Glen “Big Baby” Davis were both fined for flops too.
For last night’s game, Curry had 34 points, six rebounds and five assists in their 4 point win over the Rockets last night.
Remember that he’s also the one who was named the NBA’s MVP this season beating out our guy James Harden.
