Ray Allen's Slump

So far in this series Ray Allen is 12 for 40 from the field (30%) and 3 for 19 from three point land (15.8%).  I was pretty confident that Ray would light up JJ Redick and Courtney Lee in this series.  So far, not so good.

Paul Pierce hasn't exactly been burning the twine either, but his averages look healthier (41% from the field and 45% from 3).  After sitting out most of game 2, he had a poor first half and made up for it by getting to the line in the 2nd half.

I tend to think that Ray Allen's numbers will even out over the course of the series.  If so, you can expect a huge game from him any day now.  Then again, I kept waiting for his shot to come around last year and it took a few rounds to get there.

We're in a hole and we can't keep digging deeper.  We are going to need some better shooting from Ray Allen to advance.
