Red's Army Player of the Series: Ray Allen

Ray for 3

Round 1 statistics

  • 19.4 ppg (52.4% fg, 52.8% 3pt), 2.6 reb, 3.4 asst, 1 stl
  • High points: 25 (games 2 & 3)
  • High rebounds: 5 (game 2)
  • High assists: 5 (game 3)
  • High shooting %: 62.9% (9-13 in game 2)
  • High 3pt %: 83.3% (5-6 in game 5)

Ray Allen was "Ray Allen" for most of this series.  Steady until he needed to turn it on… and then deadly when the Celtics started to pull away.  There were plenty of other candidates, as you might expect in a 4-1 series win. Rondo averaged about 15 points and 10 assists and you could easily argue that his aggressiveness is the reason Ray could do what he did. Pierce was clutch, and not just in Game 3. And Glen Davis' energy was huge.

But it was Ray who was there with the daggers.  His shot was flat-out "on" in this series.  When he's on, you can bet things will go fairly easily for the C's.

    Absolutely endorse the pick. Truth was vintage but Ray Ray was dominant.

  • good call, ray was great….but he was a non-factor in the game 1 win…rondo was rondo in every game of the series, (and youre right about rondo being a huge reason ray got his looks)
    Pierce was great after the first 2 games being average, and KG missed a game we won by 20

    They are all the players of the series…they all showed they still got it.
    Pierce is gonna duel with LeBron and it’s gonna be epic. Be ready for some fourth quarter excitement, boys.
    Ray is gonna be the X-factor. He’s been knocking down some insane 3s and if he can do that for us against Cleveland they have no chance.

    Ray was beautiful to watch in this series. Here’s hoping he can keep it going in round 2, we need ya Ray.

  • Bill

    Can’t wait for Pierce and LeBron to duel.
    Pierce is back to vintage Pierce.
    No longer have to worry bout his pull-up J coming up short. He’s been nailing those like crazyyy.

    Ray needs to OWN the shooting guard spot vs the Cavs. Who the hell is Parker/Moon? Delonte is tough for sure but too short to cover Jesus. If Ray catches fire LeBrick will feel compelled match him shot for shot. Three for three. He can’t. This is gonna be fun!
