Rockets' James Harden fined $5,000 for flopping

By Royce Young | NBA writer

James Harden is known as one of the league's most efficient players, but he's also one of the most efficient floppers, apparently.

In just seven games, Harden has already been tagged with a second flopping violation, earning him a $5,000 fine, the league announced Monday.

His second offense happened against the Clippers on Saturday. On the play, Harden grabbed a rebound and as he felt pressure on the baseline from Blake Griffin, Harden launched himself out of bounds to try and draw a call. Which he did.

Harden's first flop came Nov. 5 against the Blazers where he exaggerated contact.

The next offense will cost Harden $10,000.
