Why we should have expected Ray’s bad shooting night

Ray shoots game 3

History is playing a big role in this series. With a focus on what history is being made, or whether certain things will follow the same historical paths, Matt Moore decided to take a look at Ray Allen's historic game 2.  And he found that history shows we shouldn't have been totally surprised by last night.

[Kenny] Smith played just 19 minutes in Game 2, going
0-2 from the field and 0-1 from the arc
on his way to 2 points. And
Pippen? Though he went 7 for 16 from the field, he only went
1
for 4 from the arc
in Game 4.

So in four players to hit 7
or more threes in a Finals game, they have a combined 1 three pointer
after doing so… between them.

But wait! There's more! Smith
went on to shoot a combined 1 for 9 through the final three games of the
Rockets' sweep. Pippen went on to shoot 2 of 11 in the remainder of the
Bulls' six game win to close out the Jordan era.

So right now,
factoring every game for a player after he hit seven or more three
pointers from the field in a Finals game, those players are a combined 3
for 28 from the three point line.

So Ray went colder than these guys, but they were all cold after being blazing hot for a game. 

Funny how things always have a way of evening out.

Ray won't be this cold again.  But it would be nice if all of our guys could get going at the same time.
