Derrick Jones after flagrant foul on Grayson Allen: 'I'm not a dirty player'

The man who drew an ejection and one-game suspension for his flagrant-2 foul on Alex Caruso on Jan. 21 that fractured Caruso’s right wrist heard boos on every touch. Except one. The one where Derrick Jones Jr. drew his own flagrant-1 foul for a body block and elbow to the head with 8 minutes, 21 seconds remaining in the Chicago Bulls’ fourth straight loss on Friday night at the United Center. “Get a stop. That’s all that goes through my head,” Jones Jr. said when asked if the foul carried special intent. “I’m not a dirty player. I talked to every ref that was there today. I don’t think it was a flagrant. They said I hit him in his head. I didn’t feel it. I just felt him bump my hip and fall. That’s all I felt.

“Y’all trying to make it something it ain’t. I ain’t even tripping off that. It’s basketball. I want to get a stop as much as they want to get a stop on the other end. What happened in Milwaukee, we didn’t like it. It’s obvious that we didn’t like it. Nobody likes that. “But I’m not going to go out there and just try to take a man out. That’s not who I am. If I get a foul while in the process of trying to get a stop, then so be it. But I ain’t gonna try to blatantly take that man out. He got a family to take care of. Why would I do that?”
