Ray Allen has always been a shooter. He was supposed to be the weak side option when Pierce or Garnett was doubled. Without that jumper, ”…you're nothing to me…” or the Celtics now. Even in Allen’s recent 25 point game, he made only three shots outside of 15 feet.
Unfortunately, Doc Joan Rivers doesn’t have a Jacoby Ellsbury to replace the slumping veteran. James Posey or Tony Allen is not that guy. Rivers has to stick with Allen and hope that he either breaks out or the rest of the team continues to pick up the slack four times out of seven.
