    Lebron, David West, and Lance Stephenson were fined for flopping. Flopping in the NBA this season, and in the playoffs has been out of control!

    Fining them isn't going to stop the flopping. -_-

    I honestly believe that the Pacers got this. They have the momentum of game 4 to tie the series going into Miami. That puts a tremendous amount of pressure on Miami. Being from Dallas and an avid Mavericks fan that I am, 2011 was so sweet to take down the evil empire, and believe me it can be done. I see the same passion and teamwork that the 2011 Mavs had in this years Pacers team.

    No, especially since 5k is nothing to those guys. Lebron probably has that much money in his couch.

    Though I think with each offense, the fine increases.

    I believe they should also give a technical foul for blatant flops.

    Honestly I would like to see a Technical 2 shot foul (so an ejection), a fine a lot more than $5,000, and a suspension of more than 5-10 games. I know it would never happen, but it frustrates me to no end to see a basketball team's possession lost to a players obvious intent of faking an elbow or in Lebron's case faking a sniper shot to the head. The NBA needs to have a no tolerance policy when it comes to flopping.

    ^That's a little too much.

    A free throw and the ball would be OK.

    Nah, the only way to discourage it nowadays to make an example out of them. Make it to where it is just not worth it anymore. I'm pretty sure if that were implemented, we would actually see the death of the flop.

    There's no way Miami is losing this series, now.

    If Indiana wins Game 6, the NBA/refs/Stern will not let Miami lose at home in Game 7.

    I feel a game 7 coming but I also think that Miami will take that game 7.

    Yeah I know. It won't stop them from flopping especially since 5k is pocket change too them.

    I was just pointing out that they were fined for flopping. I know for a fact that won't stop them or anyone else from flopping.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, Indiana Pacers and the Miami Heats are going to Game 7. It's win or go home for both team.

    I'm extremely glad the Pacers proved me wrong tonight. I didn't think the Pacers would win tonight. I figured the Heat would pull out another win. I'm very happy the Pacers proved me wrong now hopefully they can win game 7!

    For some reason the media will say something like "the Miami Heats beat the Indiana Pacers in a dramatic fashion" if they win Game 7 which its a possibility.

    Hopefully there are no officiating mistakes or bias. Don't want an amazing game and series to be overshadowed by the refs. Again.

    Haha, called it.

    This has been an amazing series to watch, hopefully we get to see a worthy ending to this series in Game 7.

    "Y'all mother****ers don't watch us play half the year." - Roy Hibbert (during the press conference)
    Roy Hibbert doesn't give a shit.


    Also, Lebron seems to be getting better and better at flopping.

    If you wouldn't have mentioned Lebron, I would've focused on Bosh since he's kinda in the middle.

    The fines aren't high enough. Really, $10,000 for a second offence?? Chump change. Happy with a fine for the first (at a higher rate), but really should be a suspension and fine for second offence. And so on and so on at increasing increments.

    Forgot to mention that Hibbert got fined $75K for the quote that I shared and for saying "no homo".

    NBA's fining policy needs some tuning.
