In an unsurprising move given the NBA's crackdown this season, Brooklyn's Reggie Evans received a warning on the league's anti-flopping rule for his actions in Thursday's win over the Celtics.

Evans and Celtics rookie Jared Sullinger were battling for rebounding position after a Brooklyn miss early in the second quarter. As the two attempted to untangle, Sullinger threw his hands up in the air and Evans -- untouched -- flailed to the ground looking for a whistle.

The referees whistled a double personal foul against Evans and Sullinger.
