Julius Randle when asked on if Jarrett Allen foul was dirty: Does it matter? My a** and elbow hurt, I'm ready to go


What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Julius Randle when asked if he thought the Jarrett Allen flagrant was dirty: “Does it even matter at this point? I got, my ass hurts, my elbow hurts, and I’ve got to get ready to play for tomorrow. So it don’t matter at this point. I’m ready to go.” – 2:05 PM
Fred Katz @FredKatz
Tom Thibodeau said everyone was healthy in practice today. Also said Randle is ready to go back to his usual rotation. He’s been subbing out five-ish minutes into first quarters for conditioning reasons. Randle just turned from a sprained left ankle. – 12:56 PM

Today’s pod is live:
@EJ_Stewart and I discuss the Knicks Game 2 loss in Cleveland…. Should Randle have been on the floor late in the 4th… How will NY bounce back in Game 3 … and, out in a Golden State, should Draymond Green have been suspended??…3:00 PM

Was thinking the same thing as @JCMacriNBA, in terms of Thibs saying he kept Randle on the court late in the game because Randle asked to keep playing:… AM

#Cavs J.B. Bickerstaff on Jarrett Allen’s late foul: “It was a contest of a dunk. If you’re going to get a steal, and they kept playing hard, they kept running through passing lanes, why would one team play hard and the other one not? There was nothing dirty about the play.” – 11:43 PM
Stefan Bondy @SBondyNYDN
Julius Randle on Jarrett Allen’s foul:
“Thought it was a little unnecessary. …Typically when you make those type of plays you go across their body, not through them. But it’s fine. It’s irrelevant. We’ll go back to the Garden, and see him there.” – 11:01 PM
Fred Katz @FredKatz
Julius Randle said his back is fine. Said he wanted to stay in the game to get his legs under him. Been focused on conditioning coming back from the ankle injury. – 10:59 PM
Ian Begley @IanBegley
Julius Randle said his back is fine. He said he asked to stay in the game late in the 4th quarter to get his legs/rhythm after missing two weeks due to ankle injury. – 10:50 PM
Ian Begley @IanBegley
Tom Thibodeau was asked what the thinking was in having Julius Randle on the floor down 20 late in 4th when Randle went down hard after a Jarrett Allen foul. Thibodeau said he was going to sub Randle out a few possessions earlier but Randle had asked to stay in to get more rhythm – 10:25 PM
Fred Katz @FredKatz
Final: Cavaliers 107, Knicks 89.
Series tied at 1-1.
• Randle 22-4-8
• Brunson 20-5-6

• Mitchell 17 pts, 13 asts
• LeVert 24-4-3

Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Nah Jarrett Allen saying that’s a hustle play up 30 late in the fourth quarter is CRAZY – 9:58 PM
Brian Mahoney @briancmahoney
Whatever Thibodeau was hoping to get out of having three starters on the floor playing hard with 3 min left in a blowout wasn’t worth it. Lucky if Randle is anywhere near 100 percent Friday. – 9:58 PM
Austin Krell @NBAKrell
Wonder how Derrick Rose feels watching first-hand the coach who altered his career not learn from his past mistakes as Randle gets hurt in a game that has been over since the middle of the third quarter. – 9:56 PM

julius randle, who should not have been in the game, gets comforted by a fan PM

Ian Begley @IanBegley
Refs rule that Jarrett Allen committed a Flagrant 1 when he contested a Julius Randle dunk on a fast break, which caused Randle to land hard on his back. Randle’s in discomfort, upset with Allen and has words for JB Bickerstaff. His dunk & FT cut Cavs lead to 20 w/2 min to play. – 9:55 PM
Steve Popper @StevePopper
Randle hits the flagrant free throw and heads straight to the locker room. – 9:54 PM
Dalton Johnson @DaltonJ_Johnson
Why the hell is Julius Randle in the game?? Thibs being way too much Thibs right now – 9:54 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Thibs leaving Randle and Brunson in til the bitter end of a game that’s been over for at least an hour is just too classic. – 9:53 PM
Danny Cunningham @RealDCunningham
Flagrant 1 on Jarrett Allen contesting a Julius Randle dunk in garbage time. Randle took a nasty fall under the hoop. – 9:53 PM
Kelsey Russo @kelseyyrusso
Foul on # Cavs Jarrett Allen was upgraded to a flagrant 1. – 9:53 PM
Tony East @TEastNBA
Brunson/Allen/Randle in? Still? – 9:53 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
I always thought Thibs didn’t deserve the criticism for the Rose injury back in 2012. Having an injured Randle in this game down 21 with 2 minutes left is absolutely absurd. – 9:53 PM
Fred Katz @FredKatz
Julius Randle just went down really hard on a Jarrett Allen foul with the Knicks down 21. Everyone appears to be ok – 9:53 PM
Yaron Weitzman @YaronWeitzman
Um, why is Randle still in? – 9:52 PM
Tommy Beer @TommyBeer
Zero reason for Brunson or Randle to still be in this game – 9:46 PM
Danny Cunningham @RealDCunningham
Knicks have brought Randle and Brunson back out on the floor while down 26 in the fourth. I don’t know about this one. – 9:39 PM
Fred Katz @FredKatz
Through three quarters, the Cavaliers lead the Knicks 82-60.
• Randle 17-4-8
• Brunson 14-5-6

• Mitchell 15 pts, 10 asts
Knicks shooting 33-23-83. They also have 15 turnovers. – 9:24 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Randle 5/15, 5 TOs. Knicks had more success with him as a roll man. Having him iso on Mobley hasn’t been successful in the 2 games. – 9:03 PM
Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
Can’t remember a time when #Cavs Jarrett Allen played with this much force. He was EVERYWHERE in that first half. – 8:50 PM
Bob Finnan @BobCavsinsider
Major point of emphasis for Cavs: They are outrebounding Knicks at halftime, 21-20. Evan Mobley has game-high 6 rebounds, Jarrett Allen 5. – 8:41 PM
Fred Katz @FredKatz
Halftime. Cavaliers lead the Knicks 59-39.
• Randle 12 & 3
• Brunson 14-2-4
• Garland 26 pts, 6-10 FGs, 10-11 FTs
Knicks have 14 turnovers and Cavs have 27 points off those turnovers. – 8:40 PM
Julius Randle accidentally hit Jalen Brunson in the face 🤕 PM

Dan Favale @danfavale
julius randle accidentally smacking jalen brunson in the face is the perfect encapsulation of this game for the knicks – 8:34 PM
Brian Mahoney @briancmahoney
This might be a night where the Knicks will have to determine if Randle just doesn’t have enough to give them and rest might be better. He’s definitely not himself tonight. – 8:27 PM
Steve Popper @StevePopper
Brunson and Randle were both down on opposite ends of the court just now at the same time. Allen seemed to apologize for hitting Brunson — no call though. Might get wild here. – 8:21 PM
Danny Cunningham @RealDCunningham
Julius Randle and Jalen Brunson both looked to be shaken up on the same possession. It ends in a Darius Garland 3-pointer. #Cavs up 9. – 8:21 PM
Fred Katz @FredKatz
Through one quarter, the Cavs lead the Knicks 25-22.
• Brunson 8 pts, 2 asts
• Randle 5 pts
• Garland 11 pts, 2 asts
• Mitchell 4 pts, 2 asts – 8:07 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Cavs making a very concerted effort to find Jarrett Allen off penetration, which they weren’t able to do enough on Saturday. But they’ve got a couple turnovers trying that now. – 7:57 PM
Fred Katz @FredKatz
Same rotation for Randle as in Game 1: out at the 5-min marker. Still getting his conditioning up after the ankle injury – 7:44 PM
Stefan Bondy @SBondyNYDN
Little has changed in the opening minutes of Game 2. Julius Randle is still beating up the Cavs and Knicks are still getting hands on all the rebounds. – 7:43 PM

Julius Randle and Jalen Brunson are the driving force behind the Knicks’ success, but the young core might be the key to the team’s playoff aspirations.

Julius Randle says his ankle is feeling fine after returning in Game 1. He says it’s his conditioning that still feels off —but he’s confident he can get back in rhythm during the series. – 10:55 AM
Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
Just watched #Cavs & #Knicks Game 1 again. There were 4 plays from Julius Randle that could’ve been viewed as crossing the line of usual playoff physicality. Wouldn’t be surprised if Cavs submitted them to NBA to make them aware. Three elbows. And a foot to Cedi Osman’s head – 11:38 PM

More on this storyline

Fred Katz: Julius Randle was nothing short of giddy doing media today. Said he’s having more fun playing ball now than ever before in his career. “My mental is just in a great place,” he said. Says of the playoffs, “I just enjoy it. I enjoy the challenge. I look forward to it. I’m excited.” -via Twitter @FredKatz / April 20, 2023
New York Knicks star Julius Randle took issue with contact he received from Cavaliers center Jarrett Allen late in the fourth quarter of Game 2 of the teams’ first-round series Tuesday night in Cleveland. With the Knicks down by 23, Randle went in for a breakaway dunk and was hit by Allen, causing New York’s All-Star forward to fall awkwardly out of bounds. Randle was upset by the contact and exchanged words with several Cavs players and coach J.B. Bickerstaff. “I thought it was a little unnecessary … typically when you make those kind of plays, you run across their body, not through them,” Randle said. “But it’s fine, it’s irrelevant. We get to go back to the Garden and we’ll see them there.” -via ESPN / April 19, 2023
Allen was called for a flagrant foul, which Bickerstaff felt was undeserved. “They kept playing hard. They kept running through passing lanes. Why would one team play hard and not the other?” he said. “There was nothing dirty about the play. It wasn’t a flagrant foul. He contested a shot at the rim. It’s that simple.” Randle scored 22 points in the 107-90 loss, which tied the series at 1. It was his second game since returning from a left ankle sprain that had sidelined him since March 29. -via ESPN / April 19, 2023
Danny Cunningham: #Cavs big man Jarrett Allen on the team’s mindset today: “Today, I wouldn’t say it was a looser practice, but we weren’t so bogged down by the loss of three days ago. We came in here and ready for tomorrow, ready for another chance at the New York Knicks.” -via Twitter @RealDCunningham / April 17, 2023
