Spurs’ Splitter draws flopping fine



San Antonio Spurs center Tiago Splitter was fined $5,000 by the NBA on Wednesday for violating anti-flopping rules during Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals in Oklahoma City.

The play took place with 7:30 left in the second quarter on Tuesday night when Oklahoma City’s Serge Ibaka pushed Splitter lightly in the chest area and he fell backward during the Thunder’s 105-92 win in Chesapeake Energy Arena.

The best-of-seven series returns to San Antonio for Game 5 on Thursday night tied at two wins each.
