Tony might be making a quicker comeback than we thought.  Can he help with Kobe?  Bulpett reports:

The biggest news out of today’s session was the return to full duty of Tony Allen. After injuring his right Achilles’ tendon area in practice last series, Allen didn’t dress for the last two games.

It was feared he would be out for The Finals, too, when he couldn’t finish yesterday’s workout, but after an MRI showed no problems, he was an active participant today.

Allen is key in this series for his ability to dog Kobe Bryant. If he is healthy enough to do that, it gives the Celts an extra top defender to put in the mix.
