Heat guard Wade fined for flopping

WADE-FINEDMIAMI, June 10- Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade was slapped with a $5,000 fine for flopping after he over-exaggerated a foul in game two of the NBA finals, the league announced.

Wade drew a foul against San Antonio Spurs Manu Ginobili with just over four minutes left in the second quarter of Sunday’s contest.

Wade was holding the ball near the sideline when Ginobili took a swipe at it, brushing the ball. Wade threw his head back and Ginobili was called for a personal foul by the referee.

The Heat won the game 98-96 to level the best-of-seven series at one game each.

Game three is Tuesday night at AmericanAirlines arena in Miami.

Meanwhile, LeBron James, who was ridiculed for cramping up in game one of the NBA finals, is looking forward to silencing his critics once again in Tuesday’s game three.

“I just try to play the game the right way,” said James. “However the flow of the game is going, I try to impose my will in some kind of way.”

Impose his will he did in game two, scoring 35 points and grabbing 10 rebounds in a 98-96 victory, allowing Miami to steal the game they needed to head back home with the series tied 1-1.

Game three is Tuesday night at the AmericanAirlines Arena in downtown Miami.

By the time James had finished scoring 11 points in the second quarter of Sunday’s game two, it was apparent the temperature had returned to normal in the AT&T Center.

James had his toughness questioned — especially on social media — following game one, when he became severely dehydrated after the air conditioning system in the building broke down.

A phenomenon called “LeBroning” trended on Twitter, mocking the four-time MVP for having to be carried off the floor by his teammates Thursday night.

In game two, it was James’ turn to do the heavy lifting.
