Derek Fisher has been fined $5,000 for violating the league’s anti-flopping rules, it was announced on Monday.
The play in question occurred during the second quarter of the Rockets’ win over the Thunder in Game 5 of their first round playoff series.
This was the hilarious “double flop” achieved in perfect synchronization by both Fisher and Kevin Martin, but Martin, for reasons unknown, came away unscathed by the league office.
If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.
But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.
Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
We had an efficient Carmelo Anthony sighting in the preseason.
Anthony and the Knicks went up against the Wizards and ‘Melo hit 10-of-15 shots to score 21 points. He also had four rebounds and four assists.
Derrick Williams had 23 points on 11 shots to lead the Knicks in scoring, and New York won 115-104.
