Atlanta Hawks guard Tre Young expressed doubts about a play by Memphis Grizzlies guard Grayson Allen in Saturday’s game, apparently feeling Allen trying to trip him on purpose.
When Allen was behind and her feet tangled, Young was putting down the screen, and Young fell a bit in the play.
“Damn…tell me what you saw! Hmm.” Yang tweeted on Sunday. “This must stop.! #ifyoudontknownowyouknow”

Allen and Young have a little history. The two suffered two technical fouls in this year’s preseason. Prior to this, Yang and Allen fought as rookies in the 2018 Summer League.
The Hawks beat the Grizzlies 122-112 on Saturday. Young scored a game-high 36 points and 9 assists.
