Tuesday's win over the Los Angeles Clippers might have been the Kings' best home victory of the season, considering the opponent. But it also was a game the NBA deemed to have had too much acting. Kings guard Tyreke Evans and Clippers guard Chris Paul both received warnings for flopping during the game. The league defines flopping "as any physical act that appears to have been intended to cause the referees to call a foul on another player." "The primary factor in determining whether a player committed a flop is whether his physical reaction to contact with another player is inconsistent with what would reasonably be expected given the force or direction of the contact." Evans was ruled to have flopped in the third quarter when Clippers forward Matt Barnes ran into his back. Evans slid in front of Barnes to initiate the contact and threw his head back. It was enough to draw a foul call on Barnes. Paul's acting attempt drew no foul call and involved no contact with another player. Paul flailed his arms and threw his head back in an attempt to make it appear as though Kings center DeMarcus Cousins had fouled him. Cousins said it was "crazy" how bad Paul's acting was. "Yeah, that was pretty bad," Cousins said of Paul's flop. "He does it all the time. Hopefully, they'll catch him some more."
