Pacers' Vogel fined $15K for calling Heat floppers
NBA executive vice president Stu Jackson issued the decision Saturday.
Vogel called Miami the "biggest flopping team in the NBA" and told reporters that it would be "interesting" to see how much flopping the officials reward. Vogel also accused Heat players of sliding over and falling down before contact is made.
The best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinals begin Sunday in Miami.
