PLAYERS: Ray Allen
TEAMS: Boston Celtics
Jackie MacMullan was just on WEEI talking Celtics, and one thing that she said that immediately caught everyone's attention was Ray Allen's sore left ankle, which has cost him the last two games.  She said "It's going to be an ongoing concern" and that it "will need to be fixed at some point." I'm not sure exactly what that means about the extent of Ray's injury.  He played on the left ankle since the injury, but it recently started to give him problems again.   Ray has had a history of ankle injuries.  Take a look at this story from April of 2007: Allen had been bothered by the ankle since early February, but didn't reveal the injury until March 1. Nevertheless, after sitting out on March 1, Allen scored at least 22 points in each of the next seven games. But he sat down for good after struggling in a game March 18 in Portland. Don't those two circumstances now sound eerily similar?  I'm not sure if this is as...

Ray Allen has been a pillar of durability since joining the Boston Celtics in 2007, missing just 16 games during his first four seasons in Boston. Preparation and diligence kept Allen’s body younger than its age, and so history’s most prolific three-point shooter masked the ankle injuries that impacted the end of his Seattle Supersonics tenure.Unfortunately for the Celtics...

Comments from the other side - Jazz 3/28

Lots of KG hate from Jazz fans.  It's funny how different fan bases hate different players.  In Utah it's KG, in Chicago it's Rondo, in other places it's Pierce and in a few places it's even Ray Allen.  Glad at least one fan stuck up for KG, though.    For all their complaints about the refs and them not getting any calls,  they shot 3 more free throws than...

Avery Bradley, Greg Stiemsma Step Up for Celtics As Injuries Take Their Toll

For Avery Bradley to soar, Ray Allen had to stumble and Mickael Pietrus had to fall. That is the cold, hard reality of the NBA, where they say nobody wants to see anyone get hurt but where everyone needs to be ready to play in the event something unexpected happens. Early in the season, Bradley was penciled in as a third-string shooting guard or possibly a point guard in mop-up duty...

Portland trying to lure Danny Ainge away from Boston?

After trading away anyone of substance from their roster at the deadline and firing their coach shortly after, the Portland Trail Blazers have reopened their search for a general manager. I know what you're thinking. Big whoop. Good for them. They're 3,000 miles away. What does that have to do with the Celtics? According to The Oregonian, one person that Portland...
