Watch: Patrick Beverley flopped against James Harden
Los Angeles Clippers guard Patrick Beverley received a warning for violating the league’s anti-flopping rule during Wednesday’s game against the Boston Celtics, but apparently he did not learn his lesson.
During a Friday night victory over the Houston Rockets, Beverley was at it once again, channeling Hollywood as he worked hard on his acting — this time against James Harden. And early on in the game, he got the call he was looking for.

But Beverley went to the well one too many times, and his next attempted flop didn’t generate the same result.

Beverley immediately pleaded with officials over the non-call, but seriously, who was he kidding? That sort of flop was so fake and ugly that the writers for Sharknado 76 would demand a re-shoot.
No surprise, the NBA sent a message to Beverley on Saturday in the form of a $5,000 fine for flopping.
