Video: Joe Johnson says LeBron James 'flopped' down the stretch

BROOKLYN - With the Nets down by down by two points and less than a minute to play, they went to Joe Johnson in the post in hopes of drawing a sixth foul on LeBron James. Johnson went to the basket, tried to draw contact, LeBron fell to the ground, no call, Johnson missed the field-goal attempt, and the game was, eventually, over. The Miami Heat won 102-96, taking a 3-1 series lead.

Here's the play, courtesy of CJ Fogler:

After the game, Johnson was asked about the play and whether or not he was trying to draw a sixth foul on LeBron. Johnson said he was more so trying to be aggressive, before going on to say that LeBron had flopped.
