Indiana Pacers forward Jeff Pendergraph became the first player to be fined for flopping in the playoffs as the NBA hit him with a $5,000 fine on Sunday. There are no warnings for flopping in the playoffs, so the first offense results in a fine. Pendergraph was cited for falling down while defending Josh Smith of the Atlanta Hawks in Wednesday's Game 5 of a first-round series. No foul was called on the play.
