Don't Expect Much More Tony Allen

New, comments

Some have wondered why we didn't see more of Tony Allen when Ben Gordon was dropping 42 points on us.  Doc has an answer:

"One thing I learned as a coach," Rivers said, "a guy scores, you don't scrap everybody that's got you there. The last time I checked, Ray Allen has played all year and we led the league in field goal percentage defensively. Because a team has had two good games - and Gordon's had one - we don't want to panic and start changing our whole team. That doesn't mean Tony [Allen] won't play. But taking Ray off the floor [in Game 2] would have been the answer - but we would have lost that game because we wouldn't have had Ray's shot."
