…. why Tony Allen doesn't play anymore?
One of the loudest calls (used in support of the "fire Doc now" argument") after game 4 was "where was Tony Allen? Isn't he supposed to our defensive specialist?"
I'm just curious… after seeing him airball a 3… and then seconds later foul Joe Johnson while taking a 3… do you still think Doc is an idiot for not playing him in game 4?
Just FYI… Tony Allen played his way out of those minutes at the end of the season… and he reminded us of that last night. You want to know why Joe Johnson didn't break out and go completely nuts last night? Team defense. Ray Allen still checked him… but unlike game 4… Ray got help. Ray got help all season long… when we all knew he wasn't a good 1-on-1 defender. Game 4 showed us what happens when you hang someone out to dry. Game 5 showed us what happens when the team helps on D.
Sorry TA… hope you do well on your next team. I don't think we'll be seeing much more of you on the court for the C's.
