Don’t you get the feeling Pau Gasol wants to yell, “who is soft now?” after this.
Both Allen and Gasol made the smart play here. Often when a game-winning shots — and Paul Pierce got off a shot he can make — players stand around and watch. Allen got in position to make the play and Gasol didn’t quit on it. Smart veterans, those two.
For fun, here’s maybe the play’s biggest highlight, and should be used in ads for German knee procedures.
