Jeff Pendergraph of the Indiana Pacers has been the first player to be fined under the NBA's anti- flopping rules. The league fined Pendergraph $5,000.
Pendergraph was fined for his Game 5 flop while defending the Atlanta Hawks' Josh Smith. In the regular season players get a warning for flopping. In the playoffs there is no warning given. Players automatically receive a $5,000 fine and the amount goes up for each offense.
Odds are Pendergraph won't be trying that again.

The NBA announced Sunday that they have fined Pacers forward, Jeff Pendergraph, $5,000 for flopping during Indiana’s 106-86 Game 5 victory over the Hawks on May 1. Pendergraph is the first player to be fined under the league’s new harsher anti-flopping policy for the playoffs in which no warnings are granted.
The offense came with 10 minutes remaining in the second quarter when...
Roy Hibbert tweeted one of the most random, odd, and bizarre items we have seen since being on Twitter. The Indiana Pacers center says he was on his way to dinner Saturday night when he got out of a cab and saw a woman poopin on the side of the road:

Only in New York. While the Knicks performance on Sunday was certainly disgusting, it wasn’t the worst thing that Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert saw all weekend. While taking a cab to dinner on Saturday night in Manhattan, Hibbert happened to catch a woman who decided to pop a squat between to parked vehicles and go to the bathroom.

Roy Hibbert had himself an unexpected surprise on his way to dinner Saturday night, and unfortunately he shared the experience on Twitter. Hibbert, who plays center for the Pacers, was on his way to dinner when he allegedly came across a young woman “calmly taking a poop on the side of the road!” By the looks of the photo it appears he is correct. Some things should just...

David West scored 20 points, Paul George added 19 and the Indiana Pacers beat the New York Knicks 102-95 on Sunday in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.
D.J. Augustin had 16 points for the Pacers, who built a 16-point lead while Carmelo Anthony was on the bench in foul trouble in the third quarter, and easily held on to spoil the Knicks' first second-round game since...
Every time Carmelo Anthony attacked the rim, a big body seemed to be waiting.
David West, Roy Hibbert and the rest of the Pacers are classic Eastern Conference bruisers, and the New York Knicks are countering with something closer to small ball.
''It'll be, to me, a contrast in styles most of the series,'' Indiana coach Frank Vogel said.
So far, the Pacers...
I thought they could do it but didn't expect they would. But game one is usually the best time to steal a game and the Pacers did it against the Knicks tonight with a stellar 102-95 victory in which they led by as much as 16 points.
The Pacers are solid at home but I wouldn't coun't the Knicks out just yet. Carmelo was roughed up and missed a lot of shots, as did...
Brian Shaw has become one of the NBA's most valuable assistant coaches and was a candidate for several vacant positions this past offseason.
Donnie Walsh, President of Basketball Operations for the Indiana Pacers, believes this could be the offseason where Shaw lands his first head coaching job.
“I think he’s going to be a great head coach, period,” said Walsh. “I don’t...
Thanks, NBA. The Knicks won game six against Boston on Friday, and on
Sunday, head back home to face the Indiana Pacers. Not even fair for
Indiana either, as the Pacers were in Atlanta on Friday knocking the
Atlanta Hawks out of the playoffs as well. Couldn't we push the game
back to Monday? No matter, the New York Knicks face the Indiana Pacers
tomorrow, and instead...
