Video: Ray Allen on his missed layup


Ray Allen was absolutely stellar in his return to the court on Sunday night.  He finished the game with 22 points, going 9-of-14 from the field and 4-of-6 from deep.  Hard to ask for anything more from your starting shooting guard.  Luckily, Ray’s a pleaser.  In what can only be described as a “Tony Allen Moment” or TAM, Allen had a wide open layup on a drive to the basket and just completely muffed it.  After the game, I had planned on asking Ray about the play, but Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald beat me to it.  Here’s the play and Ray’s response:

A really thoughtful response from a really cerebral player.  The miss was just another thing that went wrong for the Celtics in the last 4 minutes of the game but it was nice to hear Allen explain exactly what went wrong.  Well, almost exactly.  The guy that rotated over was actually Kyrie Irving while the always-terrible-defensive-player Antawn Jamison was the guy who gave the halfhearted reach in on the blow-by.

A lot of times a play like this will happen and you’ll just think the player had a brain fart.  Rarely do you hear that the player actually knew exactly what was around him and just messed up the finish.  It’s not like it’s a free throw.

    Nice, article. I'm still mystified by the C's bench. I tend to think Bass's (The Vacuum) numbers will drop if anything (e.g. ppg and rpg) since the only thing he can get more efficient at relative to his career numbers is FG% and FT%. Especially if the bench starts playing better

      Hi Janos! "Posterized" refers to "putting some one on a poster". Posters are pictures that fans will buy of their favorite players to place on their wall like artwork. Many times, the pictures will come from actual games. Take a look at this example: http://www.sportsblink.com/product_images/lebron-

      Here, LeBron James is "posterizing" Alonzo Mourning because Mourning is the other guy in the photo that features James. In Griffin's case, Perkins is the other guy in the poster or where Griffin is featured.

    Perk is gonna be seeing BG in his nightmares for awhile…….. Anyway, anyone been messing around with the espn trade tracker? I was able to get Dwight Howard and Ryan Anderson for Jajuan Johnson and KG. Now I wonder if Otis Smith would be insane enough.
