Tristan Thompson expects a chippy game with Grayson Allen after a dirty game

Tristan Thompson is looking forward to a “brisk” game against the Bulls’ newest foe, Grayson Allen, when Chicago hosts the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night.

Bulls fans have circled this game on their calendars since Allen was hit by a flagrant foul Bulls point guard Alex Caruso knocking down. Carouso broke his right wrist on the game in the loss to Milwaukee and has since been sidelined.

“Crap. Take one of my dogs like that, we’re going to have problems,” Thompson said Thursday when asked about the Bulls-Bucks match.

“You have to set the tone. That’s what Bulls basketball is all about, setting the tone. What he did influenced one of our guys and I don’t think anyone should forget that. So I’m pretty sure United Center will rock [Friday]’ said Thompson. “I think guys have [it] in the back of your mind. And if boys want to play Chippy, let’s play Chippy. I like that. I like a bit of blood and sweat so I’m enjoying it.”

In the 94-90 loss to the Bucks, Caruso drove to the basket in the third quarter and collided with Allen, who hit him hard. Caruso fell to the ground and hit his right wrist. Allen was violently booed.

Allen, who has a history of dirty games dating back to his college days at Duke, was kicked out of the game and later became suspended a game.

Twitter critics have already taken the opportunity Roast Thompson about his comments, since the center wasn’t even on the Bulls’ list when the Allen incident happened on Jan. 21. He was with the Kings at the time.

“Why is Tristan Thompson mad about something that happened before he was with the Bulls?” a tweet read.

However, Thompson’s comments can be taken as a sign that he is a good fit with the Bulls, having joined the team just two weeks ago. The cops announced his signing on Feb. 19 after being waived by the Pacers, who acquired the big man at the Feb. 10 close.

The Bulls (39-24) have slipped to third place in the Eastern Conference since Caruso went under, going 10-9 during the stretch that includes losses in each of their last three games. But the historically good game of the top scorer DeMar DeRozan has helped keep the Bulls afloat.

Bulls coach Billy Donovan said so on Feb. 16 Caruso was expected to be evicted resume dribbling and shooting practice in the next seven to 10 days.
