Allen, Young scuffle briefly during NBA Summer League matchup

Atlanta Hawks rookie Trae Young and Utah Jazz rookie Grayson Allen got into a brief altercation Thursday in the final game of Utah Jazz Summer League.

The blame will probably go to Allen because of his reputation, but this sort of thing happens all the time in the National Basketball Association.

Trent was able to play 19 minutes for the Blazers, the most of any bench player and clearly took advantage of his opportunity.

Like Trent Jr., Allen also scored 16 points in the game and also pulled down six rebounds, five assists, and three steals. Young makes the right move, ripping through like James Harden to get a cheap foul, but then he's the one that overreacts by shoving Allen, who obviously had to throw in a headbutt for good measure. Teammates quickly restrained them and the referees gave them both technical fouls. It's going to happen.

Google Duplex Conversational Voice AI Assistant Has Call Centers Seeing Dollar Signs
A new report from The Information states that the company is aiming for the technology to make its way to call centers as well. In May, Google debuted Duplex , an artificially intelligent assistant that can make mundane phone calls on behalf of a human.

Young was struggling from the field whereas Allen was playing fairly well, contributing 4 points, 5 assists and 2 rebounds, before getting into it with Young on Thursday. It's going to be a physical game.

Young didn't seem to like it and tried to force Allen to the ground. "I'm a physical player".

Knox still has a way to go, but it's hard to imagine that his first taste of NBA Summer League action could have gone much better.
