Player of the Week: Tony Allen | Red's Army - The Voice of Boston Celtics Fans
Red's Army Player of the Week: Tony Allen

Games this week:

  • @LAC: 10 pts, 10 reb, 4 ast, 4 stls, 2 TO
  • @GSW: 6 pts, 3 reb, 2 ast, 2 stls, 5 TO
  • @PHX:  12 pts, 7 reb, 6 ast, 3 stls, 4 TO
  • TOR: 14 pts, 5 reb, 7 ast, 1 stl, 3 TO

No – this is not a mistake. Tony Allen is our player of the week.

While the stats might not blow you away, the numbers are exactly what the Celtics need from TA. He's played aggressively on offense, and intelligently on defense.

Look at the versatility – 10 rebounds against the Clippers, 7 assists against the Raptors. Yes, he's had a couple of high turnover games, but that's going to happen when Tony is played 35+ minutes.

Congrats to Tony.

    Tony Allen is the Shit, unlike past times when he was just plain, well, you know.

  • Spiraea

    Well he wasn’t “the” that’s for sure. Hope he can keep up this amazing play all season long.

  • DRJ

    Right on. He deserves it for sure. Some of us were among his biggest critics, but he has now earned our respect. Turns out Doc and Danny are not completely out of their minds, eh….

  • thetitleisours

    Keep him always on a contract year lol

    Props to Tony for his efforts and to Doc for having faith in him…a well deserved award and I’m sure he reads this site so he’ll be stoked!!!

  • Tony allen has been playing good, probably the best ive seen him play since his knee injury
    but the expectatons for him are non existent, so because he contriubtes in anyway positively he gets player of the week

  • Danno

    The only people dumber then tony allen, are his fans that think a week of good play will actually be sustained by this mess of a basketball player

    totheruins……………I have seen Tony play more than 4 games so where have you been? I can’t stand people who try to impress with statements that are ridiculous… I doubt you know that Tony had a double double also. He had 10 points and 10 rebounds. I guess he has had a few turnovers of late but he has only been playing with Ray and Kendrick as all other starters are injured. So put that in your pipe and smoke it. Also in the Clippers game, he played almost 40 minutes. Since he does’t usually play that many mpg, maybe he was tired and caused more turnovers. Any one who plays as hard as he does, will (like Pierce and Rondo)will have more turnovers. I wouldn’t watch Celtics basketaball if I were you, because YOU ARE WAY TOO NEGATIVE. AS A MATTER OF FACT YOU ARE OVER THE TOP.!!!
