NEW YORK (AP) — The NBA has fined Houston Rockets swingman Corey Brewer $5,000 for flopping.

Brewer was penalized Thursday for tumbling backward well beyond the baseline and crashing into the basket stanchion after stepping in front of Clippers guard Lester Hudson with 1:03 remaining in the first quarter of Houston's 115-109 victory on Wednesday.

Hudson was called for a foul on the play.
