JJ Barea was ejected for deliberately pushing Ray Allen during the Miami Heat’s 97-81 win over the Timberwolves in Minnesota Monday. Barea felt like Allen had bumped (or elbowed) him while backing him down beyond the 3-point line with just over eight minutes left in the game and the Heat up 76-70. He responded by pushing Allen to the ground a few seconds later, causing a scuffle between the teams. Barea was charged with a flagrant-2 foul, which calls for an automatic ejection. During an interview on NBA TV after the game, Allen called Barea’s move “bush league.” According to Jerry Zgoda of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Barea said after the game he felt Allen overreacted to a “little bump.” Allen had 13 points in 26 minutes, while Barea had four points, four rebounds, and four assists in 21 minutes before his ejection. Given his history of being on the receiving end of cheap shots, you would think Barea would be above such behavior. Apparently he’s not.

  • Looked like a bump to me...exactly the same kind of bump that Allen dished out earlier. JJ didn't cry but Allen did. Go figure. Must have learned that from KG and Lebron.
  • Exactly right! Why does Allen think it's okay for him to do it, but not okay for JJ? Heat are all "actors" and crybabies.
  • The ref made the call but if you look at the replay, I don't see how he made that a flagrant 2! As a Heat fan, I question the call. They are supposed to use replay when making that determination right?
  • ALLEN SAYING IT IS BUSH LEAGUE IS HILARIOUS....HE IS ON A TEAM THAT BELIEVES IN BUSH LEAGUE PLAY WITH LEBRON & WADE AS THEIR LEADERS WITH RILEY AS THEIR KING !!!!
  • ALLEN LOOK AT LEBRON N WADE THEY PLAY AS IF THEY ARE STILL PLAYING IN THE GHETTO YARD !!
  • You got to be kidding me.
  • Didn't see the whole game, but Ray Allen gave him a real hard one just seconds before going to the basket. As usual, the retaliation foul is the one that gets noticed. Allen has been borderline dirty his whole career. Barea still should not have came back like that; flagrant 2 though? Maybe the refs are trying to finally clean up a game the NBA allowed to get out of control starting in the 80's. These current players make Unseld, Silas, Chamberlin, Cowens, and many others, look like soft players.
  • Must be a Sloooooooooow newsday.
  • Barea should be above such behavior ??? Are you kidding me ?!? Did you watch the incident ? Ray Allen is not called for a deliberate shove and then whines like a 2 year old when bumped ?? And Barea is called for a Flagerant 2 foul and ejected ?? This is so comical it defies description. And Ray Allen, regrettably, just missed an Oscar nomination for Best Acting Job in a Comedy. Is it too early to start that process for the 2014 Academy Awards ?
  • Miami Cheat are as bad as international soccer players... writhing around in pain in such dramatic fashion etc. Rondo called it right last year in the finals. "we're playing the post, they're playing the refs."
  • Allen dishes it up but can't take it and he really knows how to take a fall. Barea was just giving as good as he got. The referee is the one that s/h/b ejected
  • Barea is a flea hitting Allen. But Allen is the one crying. I guess Barea is the real man.
  • Stars can get so sensitive! Wasn't that big a shove and I'll bet the league down-grades the foul. If Lebron had shoved someone like that, the guy would have just been called for traveling. If that's the worst Ray gets, he will have had a great and non-violent career.
  • ALLEN SAYING IT IS BUSH LEAGUE IS HILARIOUS....HE IS ON A TEAM THAT BELIEVES IN BUSH LEAGUE PLAY WITH LEBRON & WADE AS THEIR LEADERS WITH RILEY AS THEIR KING !!!!
  • Can so called Professional Basketball just go away.
  • It kinda has become a junk yard dog league...the none winning Timberwolves takes knocks like that every night with no call, no less ejection...come on....the NBA refs give those calls out to the Lakers & Heat constantly,,,why...cause they cry like babies constantly...
