The NBA has fined Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade $5,000 for flopping. 

According to The Miami Herald's Andre C. Fernandez, Wade was reprimanded for exaggerating a charging foul on the San Antonio Spurs' Manu Ginobili in the second quarter of the Heat's 98-96 win in Game 2 of the 2014 NBA Finals: 

"Dwyane Wade is the latest player to be fined for flopping in this year's NBA Finals. 

"Wade was fined $5,000 after the league decided Monday that he exaggerated his reaction to a foul that was called on Spurs guard Manu Ginobili during the second quarter of Game 2 of the Finals on Sunday night. 

"It was the fifth such fine levied by the league office in the playoffs. 

"'It was a swipe he took at the ball and he hit me,' Wade said before being fined Monday. 'It was a late call by the ref, but he called it.'

"The league disagreed with Wade, who became the fourth player to be fined for flopping so far this postseason, joining (Indiana) Pacers guard Lance Stephenson (twice), Pacers center Roy Hibbert and (San Antonio) Spurs forward Tiago Splitter. 

"The play came with 4:09 left in the second quarter when Ginobili took a big swipe at the ball just as Wade caught a pass. It was Ginobili's third foul of the game and resulted in him going to the bench. Wade went on to make two free throws. 

"'I saw Manu coming out of the corner of my eye to try to steal it so my only thing was to make sure he didn't,' Wade said. 'He swiped and he wound up hitting me and the ref called a foul. We move on.' 

"Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said he wasn't surprised by the rate of flopping calls has increased in the playoffs. 

"'There's more attention to it,' Spoelstra said. 'There are probably more people in the league office watching each possession.'" 

Prior to his $5,000 fine, Wade was not given a warning or a fine for flopping during the regular season. This was his first fine of this year's playoffs, per The South Florida Sun-Sentinel's Christy Chirinos. 

Wade has been averaging 18.4 points, 4.0 rebounds and 4.1 assists in the 2013-14 NBA playoffs,per ESPN stats . The NBA Finals series is currently tied at one game apiece. 

Game 3 will be on June 10 with a 9:00 p.m EST tip-off at Miami's American Airlines Arena.
