Tony Allen, despite falling down from screen, received a kick from Kobe and isn’t happy about it.
RotoWorld: Tony Allen took eight stitches in his upper lip, and also said he suffered a neck injury in Game 3 thanks to Kobe Bryant’s foot.
Allen’s not sure how he hurt his lip, but says that Kobe kicked him while he was down in the fourth quarter. “I slipped and he actually kicked me in the neck,” Allen said. “That’s what he did. I ain’t too happy about that, neither. But he kicked me in my neck and it is what it is.”
Keep an eye on Allen and Kobe tonight, but the fact remains that it’s probably a good thing Kobe didn’t kick him in the knee, instead.
