Pacers guard C.J. Watson has only played in 18 of his team's 36 games this season but he now leads the league in anti-flopping violations after getting tagged after the fact for a flop early in the Pacers' win over the Jazz on Monday night, which will cost him $5,000.
The play came in the first quarter when the 6'2 guard was faced with boxing out 7'1 center Rudy Gobert on the glass. As you can see, Watson successfully drew a second foul on Gobert instead of trying to grab the rebound.
Here are a few more angles from NBA.com video.
Since this was Watson's second violation of the NBA's anti-flopping rule, he was hit with the fine. Watson received a warning for his first violation in Detroit on Dec. 26 when he tried a similar stunt against Pistons' big man, Greg Monroe. There was no foul on that one, instead a bucket for Detroit.
If Watson continues catching the eye of the league's flopping police, his next violation will cost him $10,000.
