Crazy NBA scenes as Allen has two heated moments

In the first quarter, Allen threw down a dunk and was walking back on defense. However, Joe Ingles dashed right into him and gave him an elbow to the face. The two stars met mid court and were separated after a little chat. Later in the second quarter, the Cavaliers tried to extend their lead on the Jazz. Osman and Allen ran a play with one another on an offensive possession. However, when Allen tried to set a screen, Clarkson shoved him off and was called for the foul. But that wasn’t enough for Jarett Allen who lightly kicked the reigning Sixth Man of The Year.

It isn’t regular for a single player to have multiple incidents. But for Allen, he was on the receiving end both the times and his frustrations came out the second time around. But when it came to the game, he sure got the upper hand.

Lamar Stevens led the way with 23 points, 7 rebounds and 2 steals. Darius Garland ran the show with a 11 points, 10 rebounds and 15 assists triple double.
