Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond has received a warning from the NBA for violating the league’s anti-flopping rule on a crucial last-minute play against Indiana on Friday night.

With the score tied, Drummond drew an offensive foul on Indiana’s Roy Hibbert with 23.9 seconds left. The third-year big man then gave the Pistons a 98-96 win with a tip-in at the other end.

The Pistons play at Atlanta on Monday night.
