Could have been career-threatening for Alex Caruso: Billy Donovan

Bulls coach Billy Donovan was very upset at this play and called for an investigation as it could have been career-threatening for Alex Caruso. Billy said – “It was really bad, it was really, really bad. For Alex to be in the air like that for him to take him down like that, it could’ve ended his career. And he has a history of this. That to me was really dangerous, and I really hope the league takes a hard look at something like that because he could’ve really seriously hurt him.”

Mike Budenholzer, the Milwaukee Bucks coach however tried to defend Grayson Allen saying (via CBS) – “It’s a hard play, I think Grayson — nothing malicious, went to block the shot. I think it’s a close call. And they went with flagrant 2 and i’m not gonna disagree. It’s right on the border and that’s the direction they went. Just hope for Caruso to be healthy and fine coming out of it.”
