The Portland Trail Blazers defeated the Utah Jazz in Game 1 of their NBA Summer League, Las Vegas schedule, but the victory didn’t come without a couple fireworks. With 3:10 remaining in the game, Blazers’ guard, and leading scorer, Wade Baldwin IV was ejected after getting tangled up on the baseline with Utah’s Grayson Allen. The video just below shows arms intertwined, then Baldwin shoving off and making contact with Allen’s face. Though the incident was relatively minor, high contact may have led to the ejection.
