New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - The NBA fined Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade $5,000 on Monday for violating the league anti-flopping rules during Sunday's Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

Wade was holding the ball near the sideline late in the second quarter when San Antonio's Manu Ginobili took a swipe at it, grazing the ball. Wade threw his head back and Ginobili was whistled for a personal foul by a referee who was standing nearby.

The Heat won the game 98-96 to even the best-of-seven series at 1-1. Game 3 is Tuesday night in Miami.
