Patty Mills of the San Antonio Spurs became the latest player to receive a warning for violating the league’s anti-flopping rules, and this one was well-deserved.

Mills jumps backward after being touched in the chest by the forearm of Mike Conley, which looks especially ridiculous in slow-motion.

Mills became the 27th player to receive at least one warning this season. Three players -- Marcin Gortat of the Wizards, P.J. Hairston of the Hornets, and C.J. Miles of the Pacers -- have been caught twice, which resulted in fines of $5,000 apiece.
