“Literal A** Kicking”-Jarrett Allen gets involved in a heated scuffle during Cavaliers monumental win against Jazz
Jarrett Allen is surely enjoying his $100 million contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers this season. Unable to receive enough appreciation and scope to grow since his drafting in 2017 by the Nets, Allen was traded to the Cavaliers in a multi-player deal with Houston Rockets that sent the former MVP James Harden to the Brooklyn Nets.
The trade was a four-team trade and Jarrett acquired a contract of 5 years with the Cavaliers and seem like the Cavs made a really good decision as the 23-year-old has been putting some really needed number on the scoreboard. Jarrett is averaging 16.9 points, 10.9 rebounds (8th in the League), and 1.8 assists per game so far in this season.
But sometimes if the players don’t keep themselves in check on the court then they might end up doing some ridiculously silly things.
Jarrett Allen Kicks Jordan Clarkson’s Butt in Frustration
The Cavaliers registered a monumental win against the Utah Jazz in their previous meet-up at the Vivint Arena on Wednesday. The Cavaliers are really impressive this season as they have been recording wins against the top tiers teams this season.
The Cavaliers’ only NBA Championship was with LeBron James in 2016, and when LeBron left the Cavaliers were back to rock bottom. But they seem to have finally picked themselves up and are giving a run to every team for their money. They beat the Utah Jazz in a monumental way by 111-91.
The whole Cavs regular roster scored in double digits and Lamar Stevens led the scoring with 23 points. Darius Garland scored a triple-double with 11 points, 10 rebounds, and 15 assists and was a great help both in offense and defense.
But what caught the fan’s eyes was Jarrett Allen trying to kick Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson’s butt during the play. During the 2nd quarter when the Jazz was defending the Cavs, Jarrett Allen tried to give a screen to Clarkson to help Cedi Osman who was guarded by Clarkson on the threes. Clarkson shoved past Allen to which the latter retaliated by kicking his leg.
Thank god it didn’t hit anything but the air still the number of physical altercations has been reaching a big number since this season started. Anyhow, Jordan Clarkson was called for a personal foul for his hard push to Jarrett Allen.
This was Cavaliers 2nd consecutive win and they will battle against the San Antonio Spurs on Friday, 18th Jan.
