Allen and Dooling ejected for fighting

Seattle, WA (Sports Network) – Seattle SuperSonics guard Ray Allen and
Orlando Magic guard Keyon Dooling were ejected for fighting in the second
quarter of Wednesday’s game.

Dooling, who was activated for the game (heel), clipped Allen in the mouth
with an elbow, which clearly frustrated the Sonics All-Star.

Allen fought through a Dooling screen, and on the other side of the basket
Dooling went after the UConn alum and ran into Allen, who hit the floor. As
Dooling was standing above him, Allen picked up Dooling and two crashed into
the stands. As they were trying to be separated, Dooling was throwing punches.

The two were separated and ejected before the encounter could escalate to the
level of the fracas that occurred in a game between the Detroit Pistons and
Indiana Pacers last season.

Dooling received a flagrant call and they were both given double technical
fouls.

After the two had left the floor, Dooling apparently tried to get to the
Sonics locker room and was seen screaming and trying to get to Allen.
