Timberwolves guard J.J. Barea was assessed a flagrant foul 2 and ejected after using his chest to bump Ray Allen during a 97-81 loss to the Heat on Monday night.
With a little more than eight minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, and the Heat leading 76-70, Barea defended Allen on the ball just outside the three-point line. After flopping back when Allen used his left arm to clear him off of the ball, Barea recovered to meet Allen on a drive, bumping Allen directly with his chest as he attacked the basket, knocking the Heat guard to the floor. The foul sparked a brief exchange of words between members of the two teams, as Allen’s Heat teammates came to his defense. Check the video below
