The league issued Davis a warning for violating its anti-flopping policy midway through the fourth quarter of the Clippers’ loss to Golden State on Sunday.
As the Warriors’ Leandro Barbosa dribbled around Davis, Davis fell on his back as if he had been knocked down by Barbosa. Davis’ acting job sold officials, who called Barbosa for an offensive foul.
Barbosa later tweeted a Vine of the play along with the message, “FLOP TIME!!”
“He flopped,” Rivers said of Davis, “so he should get a warning.”
Players are subject to a $5,000 fine if they are deemed to have violated the league’s anti-flopping policy a second time. The only other Clipper to receive a flop warning this season was J.J. Redick, during the Clippers’ game against the Boston Celtics on Jan. 19.
