Video: Pau Gasol blocks Ray Allen to save victory

Feb 10, 2012, 10:41 AM EDT

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.

    That was still the softest block I’ve ever seen, but well played.

    Pau Gasol a 7 footer with long arms blocking Ray Allen who is 6 ft 5 in and had to try and get off a rushed shot that’s SHOCKING!

    Beating Boston in Boston is always a big deal when it’s the Lakers. So many teams should be jealous of not having a player like Gasol on their team. Only a loser punk would call this 2 time champion soft.

    @mikewright7 2 things i guess.

    1. you don’t have a single cell of humor in your body.

    2. you’re just a natural anti-joke chicken.
