One more note about last night

After reviewing the box score from Game 5, one thing sticks out at me.

Deron shot eight free throws, which ties his playoff high. For as aggressive as he was last night, that's incredible. Deron spent a lot of time driving to the hoop and getting hit. Unfortunately, because he doesn't fall down every time he attempts a layup (Tony Parker), he can't get the whistles.

Thanks for ruining it for the rest of the league, the Spurs.

Has flopping really become so entrenched in the NBA that if a player doesn't fall down he doesn't get the call?
