Gerald Wallace receives warning for flopping against Knicks

Friday November 30th, 2012

Nets forward Gerald Wallace received a warning for flopping in a play against Carmelo Anthony on Monday night. In overtime, Wallace made contact with Anthony who used his elbow to create space as he went up for the three-pointer. Wallace threw his arms back and backed up several steps.

It is Wallace's first warning; if he commits another flopping violation, he'll be fined $5,000.

The Nets won the game 96-89, and Wallace finished with 16 points and five rebounds. A video of Wallace's flop is below:
