MLB trade deadline:

Rockets G Harden fined for flopping

The SportsXchange

Houston Rockets guard James Harden was fined $5,000 Monday for violating the NBA's anti-flopping rules for the second time this season.

The incident occurred with 4 minutes left in the fourth quarter of Houston's 107-94 loss to the visiting Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday.

Harden came down with an offensive rebound after his own miss. When Clippers forward Blake Griffin came over to defend and slightly bumped him, he fell to the ground and drew a foul.

Harden is averaging 24.4 points, 4.9 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game this season.
