Former Oklahoma City Thunder guard James Harden was fined $5,000 by the NBA on Monday for flopping in the Houston Rockets’ 107-94 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday.

It was Harden’s second flop-related offense this season. This time, he tried to bait the refs into calling a foul on former OU star Blake Griffin after a rebound. Harden grabs the board and Griffin simply stands there as Harden leans in a little then flies across the baseline in front of photographers. Griffin didn’t even touch him.

C’mon, James. You’re better than this.
