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.
