Tony Allen Fined $5,000 For Game 2 Flop

May 19, 2013; San Antonio, TX, USA; Memphis Grizzlies shooting guard Tony Allen (9) reacts after a call during the fourth quarter against the San Antonio Spurs in game one of the Western Conference finals of the 2013 NBA Playoffs at AT

The league announced Friday that Tony Allen has been fined $5,000 for violating the leagues anti-flopping rule, in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals.

Allen was fouled late in the fourth quarter (video below), which ended up completing the Spurs choke job, where San Antonio eventually won in overtime. Even though Ginobili’s foul was classified as a flagrant, there’s no doubt that Allen sells the call in an Academy Award worthy performance once he hits the ground.

If this were the regular season, Allen would have received just a warning. But the policy is different in the playoffs, with the first offense resulting in a $5,000 fine.

And now we can enjoy this wonderful GIF forever.
