Warriors’ Marreese Speights receives warning for flopping against Bulls
Marreese Speights received a flopping warning from the league for this play late in the Warriors’ win over the Bulls on Saturday.
Speights gets stuck behind a screen from Pau Gasol while trying to defend Jimmy Butler, and once he realizes he can’t get through it, he tries to bait the officials into calling the foul in a last-ditch effort to save the possession.
Thankfully, the refs didn’t fall for it, and Butler calmly drained the three despite Speights’ actions.
This definitely was a flop, but it’s worth noting we’ve seen far worse go unpunished.
