“Me, O.J. and the team, we pretty much had a whole practice on focusing on our offense and getting better with our defense,” Allen said. “I pretty much think it’s behind us. That’s how we’re looking at it at this point.”

Hollins had both players apologize and said the team showed it responded well to the fight by beating Oklahoma City.
“It’s not an issue,” Hollins said. “It’s like spraining your ankle. You get up, you tape it, you keep playing. You have an altercation, you shake hands, it’s over. You move forward.”

“They don’t want to know the news of the fight, they want to know the juice of the fight, and that’s unfortunate,” Hollins said. “It’s why we have so many reality shows. They want to see people’s dirty lives …
