Flopping Rumors

Anthony hit Sefolosha in the face while the two were entangled near the basket during Wednesday night’s 102-98 Knicks overtime loss in Atlanta. After the blow, the two players came face to face and had to be separated by teammates and officials. Anthony was whistled for a flagrant foul 2, which resulted in an automatic ejection. “I don’t think it was anything Sefolosha was doing as far as being overly physical or anything like that. It was just a battle; we were both trying to go for it. Got tangled up,” Anthony told reporters Thursday. “He did his European and flopped a little bit.”

On a night the pain in his right thigh robbed him of explosion, Miami Heat center Hassan Whiteside took pride in still being able to stand up to the challenge. His only wish was the Charlotte Hornets would have done the same. “I don’t know man, it’s looking like the flop-offs to me,” Whiteside said after foul trouble in Monday night’s 89-85 loss at Time Warner Cable Arena dropped the Heat into a 2-2 tie in this best-of-seven opening-round NBA playoff series. “The refs just got to watch for people flopping.”
