Things between the Chicago Bulls and Milwaukee Bucks got heated again on Tuesday night.
It seems like there is some tension and fireworks every time these two teams meet.
Last night, an incident once again involving Bucks guard Grayson Allen was the center of attention.
But this time, it was Allen being fouled.
In the fourth quarter of the Bucks’ 127-106 victory over the Bulls, center Nikola Vucevic knocked Allen to the floor as the Bucks star was driving to the basket.
This happened right after Vucevic was fouled by Bucks center Brook Lopez and it resulted in a dead ball technical foul.
After the game, Vucevic seemed confused by the technical.
Nikola Vucevic on his dead ball technical foul after he hammered Grayson Allen: "My intention wasn't to foul him or injure him." Didn't understand why he got a T.

The Bulls big man said that he didn’t intend any harm during the play.
“My intention wasn’t to foul him or injure him,” Vucevic said.
While Vucevic swears he didn’t mean anything by the foul, some people suspected it was because of bad blood between the teams.
Allen The Villain
The disdain for Allen from Bulls fans goes back a few months now.
Back in January, Allen swatted Bulls player Alex Caruso down in a move that resulted in Caruso fracturing his right wrist and missing weeks of play.
It was a nasty play that led to Allen being suspended briefly.
Ever since then, he’s been one of the most disliked men in Chicago.
If these two teams meet again in the playoffs, you can bet the boos will be very loud when Allen takes to the floor.
