Caruso was frustrated with the foul
The Bucks were able to pull out at a win 90-94 at home against the Chicago Bulls, who simply didn't have enough firepower to beat the defending champions. One specific play in that game also received a lot of attention, and that was the moment during the third quarter when Grayson Allen committed a pretty hard foul on Alex Caruso which resulted in him getting ejected from the game.
In a press conference after the game, Caruso was, frustrated because of the loss, but it seemed even more because of the hard foul from Allen. He understands these types of fouls could lead to injuries which luckily wasn't the case this time.
"Didn't really know, really, what happened during the play," Caruso said. "But afterwards, just looking at it, dude just grabbed me out of the air. Kind of bullsh*t, I don't know what else you can do about it. Just glad that I didn't have any major, major, scary injuries right away."
The NBA should do something about these type of fouls
Even the Chicago Bulls coach Billy Donovan spoke about the foul after the game, saying the league should take a closer look at plays like those and find a way to eliminate them from the game. For Donovan, there is no question that was an unnecessary foul that could have led to a more severe injury.
"For Alex to be in the air like that, for you to take him down like that, you could have ended his career," Donovan said. "And he has a history of this. And that, to me, it was really dangerous. I really hope the league takes a hard look at something like that, because he could have really, really, seriously hurt him. He's dealing with his wrist right now, I don't know what extent his wrist is. Just being there, it's really, really dangerous to go after somebody like that."
It will be interesting to see if the NBA responds with some additional fines for Grayson Allen after this game. The opinions regarding these types of plays are usually pretty dividing. Some fans believe plays like that are a normal part of the game, while some think there is no room for this type of move in today's NBA. Grayson probably overdid it, and it's hard to believe there were some bad intentions of actually hurting Caruso.
