MIAMI -- David Stern is determined to stop the floppers, even if it takes until the next morning.

The NBA commissioner and the league's competition committee met Monday and had a discussion about players deceiving referees into calling fouls by falling down, or flopping.

Stern says one option could be a "postgame analysis" in which players could be penalized if it was determined he flopped. He says the league wants to find a way to "put a stake in the ground that says this is not something that we want to be part of our game."

The committee also discussed expanding instant replay for flagrant fouls and goaltending, and seemed to favour leaving the away from the ball foul rule as is, so coaches could continue to foul bad free throw shooters.
