The Los Angelas Clippers were set to take on the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday night at the Staples Center.
The Clippers entered the game with confidence having already won seven of their first 10 games going up a slow Grizzlies team winning five of 10.
Chris Paul once again started the game red hot. Tony Allen certainly thought so and felt he had to play tight defense. Really tight defense. Foot right in his face. Literally.
Late in the first, CP3 was able to get by his man as he always does and was met by Allen in the paint. Yes, Allen the shooting guard.
Allen felt he had to get back to his man on the three point line so he jumped and elevated his foot really high for no apparent reason. His shin connected beautifully with CP3's mouth, unfortunately this was a basketball game, not a UFC fight.
The officials immediately ejected Tony Allen and he did not return for the remainder of the game. Luckily Z-BO was able to carry the Grizzlies over the Clippers and Chris Paul.
