Yesterday's matchup both involved the play of Delonte West. We can all see his importance to this team when he's at least relatively healthy, as it's obvious that he can make plays. The self-proclaimed jack of all trades has been known for some flashy plays sprinkled in here and there as well. Delonte is featured as the lower seed in today's matchup, but not with a dunk.
One of Ray Allen's signature dunks this year, is however the higher seed. During Game 4 against Miami, Ray came out of nowhere to posterize Chris Bosh. Late during the regular season visit to Atlanta, Delonte hosted an impromptu block party, but this was not a block party that you wanted to be invited to if you were a Hawk.
Seed #12: Ray Posterizes Bosh – Ray makes a post entry pass to KG who is being defended by Joel Anthony. As Ray passes, he cuts baseline and KG hands it off to him and simultaneously screens his man, Dwyane Wade. Chris Bosh recognizes this a bit too late and surprisingly gets posterized by Ray.
Seed #53: Delonte Hosts a Block Party in Atlanta – The first block is at the hands of Jeff Teague who gets rejected on a three point attempt. The next block comes during transition and Al Horford attempts to lay it up, but Delonte meets the challenge and rejects him. Solid work by Delonte on both plays.
