The Celtics have had their fair share of shooting guard woes this season. Courtney Lee, touted for his ability to hit corner-threes with regularity, has only made 17% of this threes this season. Jason Terry, the Celtics microwave, is still on “defrost.” Then there is Avery Bradley, the man who played last postseason with constantly dislocating shoulders, is still shelved from the surgeries.
Given all these early struggles, it’s nice to know that things may not be entirely different had the C’s re-signed Ray Allen. The Miami Heat got a dose on how even a future Hall of Famer can give headaches last night when the following sequence happened:
Quite the impressive block by Bayless but this is still consistent with Allen’s propensity to forget that he as trouble finishing over younger, more athletic players. I mean, he’s 37 years old, so he should be having this type of trouble. But he also should be dumping the ball back to a trailer; in this case, LeBron James.
Anyway, you’re all Celtics fans. Just enjoy the sight of Allen getting his lunch fed to him.
