Miami Heat point guard Mario Chalmers has been fined $5,000 for his flop on Wednesday night against Blake Griffin.

The flop, which you can watch below, drew a charging call against the Clippers’ Griffin in Miami’s 116-112 win over Los Angeles.

This isn’t the first time that Chalmers has been caught flopping this season as he was warned after Miami’s game against the Atlanta Hawks on January 20.

The NBA began warning, and fining, players for flopping last season, but with a fine of only $5,000 players are likely to be ok with paying the fine if they can draw an extra charge or two in the game.  Chalmers joins James Harden, Lance Stephenson and Corey Brewer as the four players to be hit with the massive fine this season.
