Dwyane Wade may have gotten off to a slow start in Game 2 of the 2014 NBA Finals, but his flopping artistry didn't suffer.

There's a reason Ginobili reacted the way he did. Thanks to Wade's theatrics, Ginobili picked up his third personal foul.

Wade sank the two ensuing free throws to cut the Spurs' lead down to 37-36.
