Jazz were up double digits a lot of the game including 14 in the third quarter. Not sure two made free throws were the game changer. Clippers had 5 point lead with 15 seconds left before almost blowing it.

this is the problem with their rule. chauncey or anyone are still gonna flop no matter how big the fine or suspension in that situation to help win a game. officials need to be able to take calls back.

I've been thinking for awhile that an obvious flop should be called a technical foul, so that the call could actually influence the game, making players less likely to attempt it, but that could end up being a mess as well. Although, the officials do call diving in hockey, which seems to be a tougher call to make than some of these NBA flops.

Lol at you saying this about your own team after calling my loyalty into question. Jazz got about 6 free throws off flops tonight so this is a non issue. If you're up 14 late in the game and lose you have nobody to blame but yourself.

Do you remember when KD would always do his rip move from 2008-2011? Thats how he won his scoring title in 2010 & 2011.

That's a Flop too. Just like Reggie Miller/billups kick move.

I agree the Jazz are back. Couldn't believe Hayward and Millsap outflopped the Clips 3 to 1 today.

Billups has been doing that play forever, hes pretty much the master of it. I wouldn't mind techs to any player that flops tbh.

Lol, what a shameless flop, and a game changing flop no less. Expect Stern to make an example out of this.
