Stephenson fined for flop

Indiana guard hit with $5,000 fine

NEW YORK – The flop that nearly broke the internet will leave Lance Stephenson $5,000 lighter in the wallet.

Stephenson fell to the floor dramatically during Indiana's 87-83 loss to the Heat.

The flop happened with 3:37 left in the third quarter.

The NBA issued the fine on Wednesday.

Stephenson's pose on the floor has gone viral with countless pictures superimposing Stephenson layed out on the ground.

Miami and Indiana meet in Game 3 on Saturday.
