OKLAHOMA CITY -- Oklahoma City's Derek Fisher was fined $5,000 by the NBA on Monday for flopping in Game 5 of the Thunder's first-round playoff series against the Houston Rockets.

Fisher's fine was the result of a play in the second quarter when both he and teammate Kevin Martin fell backward onto the floor to take a charge against Houston centre Omer Asik. Asik was called for an offensive foul on the play.

Fisher became the second player to be fined under the NBA's new rules against flopping in the post-season. Indiana's Jeff Pendergraph was fined on Sunday.

In the playoffs, the NBA is fining players $5,000 for their first flopping offence, $10,000 for the second offence, $15,000 for the third flop and $30,000 the fourth time.
