MIAMI -- The flop is having an impact on the playoffs, and its being caught much more than it was in the regular season. Victor Rask Jersey . Miami guard Dwyane Wade became the latest recipient of a post-season flopping fine Monday when the NBA ordered him to give up $5,000 after a review showed he over-exaggerated a foul during Game 2 of the finals that was charged to San Antonios Manu Ginobili. And theres an ironic twist -- Ginobili is often considered a master flopper, but he wasnt even warned once about it this season. "He took a swipe and he hit me," Wade said Monday, before the fine was announced. "It was a late call by the ref, but he called it." The league saw it a little differently. It was the fifth flopping violation of the playoffs, which works out to one in every 17.2 games. The NBA said 35 flops were caught in the regular season, or one in every 35.1 games. Players are not fined in the regular season until their second flop of the year; in the playoffs, every flop is a fine. "Flopping," Miami guard Shane Battier once said, "is a silent killer." Well, unless it works. Wade drew the foul against Ginobili with 4:09 left in the second quarter on Sunday night. Ginobili, who took a big swipe at the ball about 35 feet from the basket, wound up going to the bench with his third foul of the half. Wade went to the line and made the two resulting free throws, since Miami was already in the bonus. The Heat wound up winning by two points. "I saw Manu coming out of the corner of my eye to try to steal it so my only thing was to make sure that he didnt steal it," Wade said. "He swiped and he wound up hitting me and the ref called a foul. We move on." The Heat-Spurs matchup is tied 1-1, with Game 3 in Miami on Tuesday night. Some of the flops in the playoffs have been almost circuslike acting jobs, including a pair by Indiana guard Lance Stephenson -- the official leaguewide leader in flopping this season with two violations in the regular season and two more in the post-season. Hes had to pay $20,000 for those flops, or basically about 2 per cent of his seasons salary. For Wade, whos made nearly $19 million in salary this season, the $5,000 was mere pocket change. And situations like that were pointed out last year by now-retired NBA Commissioner David Stern, who said the small fine "isnt enough. Youre not going to cause somebody to stop it for $5,000 when the average players salary is $5.5 million." Stern added then that anyone who thought the fine would stop the flop is allowing "hope to prevail over reason." So it would be no surprise if tougher flopping penalties were at least discussed when the NBAs competition committee when that group meets this summer. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said hes not surprised that the rate goes up in the playoffs, saying Monday that it could be as simple a reason as "more people in the league office watching each possession." Besides Stephenson and Wade, the other post-season flop fines have been assessed to Indianas Roy Hibbert and the Spurs Tiago Splitter. All of those flops were cited in the conference-final round or later. Indianas season ended with a third straight playoff loss to the Heat. And not surprisingly, it wouldnt seem like the Pacers are rooting for their conference member this time of year -- a media relations official from East finalists tweeted shortly after the Wade-Ginobili play Sunday that the Heat guard deserved a flopping fine and even made what seemed like a lighthearted plea to the league: "Cmon NBA, do it for Lance." Jiri Tlusty Jersey .Tatjana Haenni, FIFAs head of womens competitions, told a FIFA Live Your Goals Tour news conference Friday that the artificial turf is being tested to make sure it meets standards.

Today, we look back at LeBron James and the Miami Heat winning their second straight NBA championship.Gareth Bale says Sundays World Cup Qualifier against Georgia is another massive game for Wales. The match is in Cardiff (KO 5pm, live on Sky Sports 1) and Bale added that Wales need their home form to be strong if they are to successfully qualify for Russia 2018. I think it is another big game, said the Real Madrid forward. It is the old cliche again of we are taking it one game at a time, but that is the way we have been approaching things in the past, and that is how we will continue to do it. It is a massive game for us tomorrow and our home form is going to be key to us qualifying.I think today is the main day when we will really sit down and look at the opposition so I cant comment too much at the moment, because I dont know too much.But I have seen their results in the past and they have had very good results - they beat Spain [in a pre-Euro 2016 friendly], and I dont think they deserved to lose against Ireland [in a World Cup qualifier last week] from what I hear.I am sure it is going to be a difficult game tomorrow and one we need to prepare for right.It was a difficult game in Vienna [a 2-2 draw with Austria on Thursday], a hard-earned point, and obviously we have to make sure we are recovered and ready for tomorrow with no excuses. Joe Allen (right) scored in Vienna but will miss Sundays match Wales will be without Aaron Ramsey and Joe Allen on Sunday due to injury but Bale says the absence of two such key figures does not increase the pressure on him.
