The NBA issued Pistons guard Brandon Jennings a $5,000 fine on Tuesday for his second violation of the league’s anti-flopping rules this season. He becomes the five player to draw a fine this year, joining Rockets guard James Harden, Timberwolves forward Corey Brewer and Pacers guard Lance Stephenson, and Heat guard Mario Chalmers.

Jennings was penalized for an exaggerated response to an invisible elbow to his upper body from Bucks forward Jeff Adrien during Detroit’s 116-111 home victory on Monday. With a little more than three minutes remaining in the fourth quarter and the Pistons leading 104-100, Adrien secured a defensive rebound in traffic. He lightly swung his arms to clear space and Jennings, who had followed his own shot after missing a runner, launched himself backwards from Adrien’s body in response to the swing.
