The NBA announced that Spurs' center Tiago Splitter was fined $5,000 for flopping in Tuesday's Game 4 in Oklahoma City. 

Splitter took a dive with 7:30 to play in the second quarter.  Serge Ibaka extended his arm to the defending Splitter, but Splitter tried to sell contact to the officials by jumping backward violently and hitting the deck. 

The officials didn't buy it then, and now Splitter will have to pay for it. 

Game 5 is Thursday in San Antonio.
