Oklahoma City Thunder guard Kevin Martin was fined $5,000 by the NBA for his second flopping violation of the season.

Martin was fined for his flop in Sunday's loss against Denver. You can see the video of the play here. It basically looks like Martin suffered some sort of full body spasm in midair.

Martin's first warning came in OKC's Nov. 16 game against the Detroit Pistons.

The NBA has taken the initiative to crack down on flopping this season, a widespread problem throughout the league. Martin and Minnesota Timberwolves guard J.J. Barea joined Brooklyn Nets forwards Gerald Wallace and Reggie Evans as the only players to actually be fined by the league this season.

Martin's next flopping violation will cost him $10,000.
