CJ Watson gives flopper a taste of his own medicine

C.J. Watson isn’t known for talking, but the Nets backup point guard couldn’t help himself after getting the better of a testy back-and-forth with Timberwolves point guard J.J. Barea in the fourth quarter of the Nets’ 91-83 win last night.

After Watson appeared to have flopped to draw an offensive foul on Barea early in the fourth quarter, he seemed to admit as much when he was interviewed on the court after the game by the YES Network.

“J.J. Barea’s a flopping guy, so I tried to give him a taste of his own medicine,” Watson said. “I hope I don’t get fined, though.”
