The NBA issued flopping warnings to Minnesota's JJ Barea and Cleveland's Donald Sloan on Monday, the first two under a new policy designed to end the act.
It's rare that an NBA coach actually looks forward to playing back-to-back games. But Wizards coach Randy Wittman wanted to erase the memory of his team's 38-point drubbing at the hands of the New York Knicks on Friday night as soon as possible.

"It's just a judgment call," Sloan said. "I'm sure they'll crack down on it."
