National Basketball Association
NEW YORK (AP) - Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry has been fined $5,000 by the NBA for violating the league's anti-flopping rules against the Houston Rockets in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals.
The NBA made the announcement on Wednesday. The league says the flop occurred after Curry's 3-pointer with 3:07 remaining in the fourth quarter of the Warriors' 110-106 victory on Tuesday night.
Curry made the shot and fell to the court after getting bumped by defender Terrence Jones. The 3-pointer gave the Warriors a 106-97 lead.
