Players are not fined in the regular season

Chapel Hill, NC ( - The Iowa Hawkeyes play their first true road game of the season on Wednesday night, as they head to the Dean Smith Center to tangle with the 12th-ranked North Carolina Tar Heels as part of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. Iowa is 5-2 on the young season, having claimed all of its wins at home, while its two setbacks occurred against Texas and Syracuse on back-to-back nights in New York City as part of the 2K Classic. The Hawkeyes have since won three straight, with the most recent being a 77-44 rout of visiting Longwood last Saturday. North Carolina brings a 5-1 record into this matchup, as the team has won two in a row since suffering a 74-66 loss to Butler in the Bahamas as part of the Battle 4 Atlantis. The Tar Heels responded to the defeat by posting double- digit wins over UCLA and Florida. Iowa leads the all-time series with North Carolina, 2-1, and this is the first meeting since the Tar Heels took a 106-92 decision on Nov. 24, 2004. Iowas strength this season has been its ability to put the clamps down at the defensive end, as it yields only 57.6 ppg behind typical shooting efforts of .348 overall and .292 from 3-point range. From an offensive standpoint, the Hawkeyes are netting 73.7 ppg, and boast a pair of double-digit scorers in forwards Aaron White (16.7 ppg, 7.6 rpg) and Jarrod Uthoff (11.6 ppg, 5.6 rpg). Three others net at least 7.3 ppg for a team that is knocking down 43.2 percent of its total shots, which includes a 34.3 percent showing from beyond the arc, and owns favorable margins in both rebounding (+4.6) and turnovers (+2.6). White turned in an impressive effort in the recent win over Longwood, as he went 8-of-12 from the floor to score 19 points, while Uthoff chipped in with 11 and Gabriel Olaseni came off the bench to tack on 10 more. Iowa was once again on point when it came to playing defense, as the Lancers hit just 31.3 percent of their field goal attempts, while committing 20 turnovers. North Carolina has had very little trouble putting points on the board through the first few weeks of the season, as it is averaging 81.3 ppg in converting 44.9 percent of its total shots, although that includes only a 31.6 percent effort from 3-point land. There are four double-digit scorers on the roster, led by Marcus Paige and his 15.2 ppg. Kennedy Meeks is averaging a near double-double with 13.8 points and 9.7 rebounds per contest, the latter figure helping the team log a +4.7 rebounding differential. The Tar Heels are also on the plus side of the ledger in turnover margin (+3.3), while limiting the opposition to 33.7 percent field goal efficiency, which includes a dreadful 26.8 percent performance from long range. All five starters scored in double figures for UNC in the 75-64 win over Florida in the Bahamas last week, as the team used a red-hot shooting effort in the opening half to keep the Gators at bay. Meeks led the Tar Heels with 18 points and 13 boards, although he was guilty of six of the teams 19 turnovers. Paige used a 9-of-10 effort at the foul line to tally 16 points for the winning side, as Florida was held to 32.8 percent shooting, which included a 6-of-27 effort from downtown.

MIAMI -- The flop is having an impact on the playoffs, and its being caught much more than it was in the regular season. Miami guard Dwyane Wade became the latest recipient of a post-season flopping fine Monday when the NBA ordered him to give up $5,000 after a review showed he over-exaggerated a foul during Game 2 of the finals that was charged to San Antonios Manu Ginobili. And theres an ironic twist -- Ginobili is often considered a master flopper, but he wasnt even warned once about it this season. "He took a swipe and he hit me," Wade said Monday, before the fine was announced. "It was a late call by the ref, but he called it." The league saw it a little differently. It was the fifth flopping violation of the playoffs, which works out to one in every 17.2 games. The NBA said 35 flops were caught in the regular season, or one in every 35.1 games. Players are not fined in the regular season until their second flop of the year; in the playoffs, every flop is a fine. "Flopping," Miami guard Shane Battier once said, "is a silent killer." Well, unless it works. Wade drew the foul against Ginobili with 4:09 left in the second quarter on Sunday night. Ginobili, who took a big swipe at the ball about 35 feet from the basket, wound up going to the bench with his third foul of the half. Wade went to the line and made the two resulting free throws, since Miami was already in the bonus. The Heat wound up winning by two points. "I saw Manu coming out of the corner of my eye to try to steal it so my only thing was to make sure that he didnt steal it," Wade said. "He swiped and he wound up hitting me and the ref called a foul. We move on." The Heat-Spurs matchup is tied 1-1, with Game 3 in Miami on Tuesday night. Some of the flops in the playyoffs have been almost circuslike acting jobs, including a pair by Indiana guard Lance Stephenson -- the official leaguewide leader in flopping this season with two violations in the regular season and two more in the post-season.dddddddddddd. Hes had to pay $20,000 for those flops, or basically about 2 per cent of his seasons salary. For Wade, whos made nearly $19 million in salary this season, the $5,000 was mere pocket change. And situations like that were pointed out last year by now-retired NBA Commissioner David Stern, who said the small fine "isnt enough. Youre not going to cause somebody to stop it for $5,000 when the average players salary is $5.5 million." Stern added then that anyone who thought the fine would stop the flop is allowing "hope to prevail over reason." So it would be no surprise if tougher flopping penalties were at least discussed when the NBAs competition committee when that group meets this summer. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said hes not surprised that the rate goes up in the playoffs, saying Monday that it could be as simple a reason as "more people in the league office watching each possession." Besides Stephenson and Wade, the other post-season flop fines have been assessed to Indianas Roy Hibbert and the Spurs Tiago Splitter. All of those flops were cited in the conference-final round or later. Indianas season ended with a third straight playoff loss to the Heat. And not surprisingly, it wouldnt seem like the Pacers are rooting for their conference member this time of year -- a media relations official from East finalists tweeted shortly after the Wade-Ginobili play Sunday that the Heat guard deserved a flopping fine and even made what seemed like a lighthearted plea to the league: "Cmon NBA, do it for Lance."
