Ray Allen

  1. Rick Barry says Ray Allen travelled on key Game 6 three

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 6

    Talk with a group of basketball fans – it doesn’t have to be too large – and discuss that play, Michael Jordan’s final shot with the Bulls, the basket that won the 1998 NBA Finals over the Jazz. Someone will claim Jordan pushed off Bryon Russell.* Unlike nearly every other all-time great shot in NBA…

  2. Watch reaction of arena full of Spurs fans to Ray Allen’s Game 6 three (VIDEO)

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 6

    It was the defining moment of these NBA Finals — Miami was down three in Game six and were seconds away from losing the series to the San Antonio Spurs. LeBron James missed a three, but Chris Bosh got the rebound, Ray Allen hit the step back three and the rest is history. In San…

  3. Stephen Curry dribbles while juggling waffle fries (VINE)

    Sep 3, 2013, 11:53 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors guard Curry catches a break against the San Antonio Spurs in the second overtime period during Game 1 of their NBA Western Conference Semifinals basketball playoff series in San Antonio

    I’ll be honest: I have not tried Chick-fil-A’s waffle fries (I just don’t eat there). I’m sure they are delicious. And fat free. Stephen Curry is working on his game this offseason by practicing dribbling while juggling waffle fries. Which sounds strange, but makes as much sense to me as dribbling through an airport, putting…

    Sports Spectacular 2013 - Inside

    The NBA can be a pretty testosterone driven world — and in that world men eat meat. Lots of it. Maybe boiled chicken breasts, maybe steaks, Kobe Bryant mixes in the odd In-n-Out burger as his vice (which is better than 5 Guys, but that’s another debate for another day). But there are vegetarians in…

  5. Boris Diaw says he still thinks about Finals loss to Heat

    Aug 27, 2013, 4:25 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs' Duncan congratulates teammate Diaw during a time out during first quarter play against the Miami Heat in Game 5 of their NBA Finals basketball series in San Antonio

    The Finals series between the Heat and the Spurs was epic not only because it took all seven games to decide, but because of the extremely high overall level of play that was displayed by both teams throughout. It’s also likely to be among the most painful to remember by the losing team’s players. San…

  6. Miami Heat top 10 plays of the 2013 season (VIDEO)

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 6

    We all knew what would be coming in at No. 1 on this compilation the folks at the NBA put together of the Miami Heat’s top plays of the 2013 season. But there were at least a few that had slipped my mind here given all that transpired. I only have two issues with this…

  7. More schedule leaks: Nets to host Heat in home opener, Knicks to host Heat Feb. 1

    Jul 31, 2013, 7:47 PM EDT

    LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler

    The full 2013-14 NBA schedule is likely to be released some time in the next couple of weeks, but there are certain entities (like the league’s broadcast partners, for example) that have seen as close to what will be the final draft as possible. That’s one reason some of the marquee dates are beginning to…

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points more than we like to debate In-n-Out vs. Five Guys (it’s In-n-Out, obviously)…. •…

  9. Pierce, Garnett talk Rondo’s adjustment to injury, very different team

    Jul 22, 2013, 9:55 AM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    The Boston Celtics are Rajon Rondo’s team now. The veteran leaders Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen are long gone, which was already going to make this a strange season for Rondo — they have gone from a team that thought about titles to rebuilding. Add in the fact Rondo is coming back off…

  10. Rick Barry says Ray Allen traveled on critical Game 6 three

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 6

    It was the most iconic moment of this year’s dramatic NBA Finals — San Antonio was seconds away from winning the NBA title and Miami was trying to force overtime in Game 6 with the Heat down three. LeBron James missed a three but Chris Bosh got the rebound and passed to Ray Allen, who…

  11. You can keep talking about changes Miami should make, Ray Allen says team not listening

    Miami Heat Victory Parade And Rally

    The Miami Heat won 27 games in a row during the regular season, finishing the year with 66 wins and the best record in the NBA. They were pushed to seven games twice, but they are now the back-to-back NBA Champions. So it was a little stunning in the wake of the Heat win to…

  12. McDonald’s taught Ray Allen an early lesson about conditioning that helped shape an 18-year career

    Jul 10, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Ray Allen

    Ray Allen just opted in for an 18th NBA season at age 38. That decision was certainly made easier by the fact his 17th season ended with a championship ring, one the Miami Heat would not have won without him. Plus he is still effective — he averaged 10.9 points a game and shot 41.9…

  13. Report: Warriors put David Lee on trade block

    Jul 1, 2013, 9:15 AM EDT

    David Lee

    The 2013 NBA playoffs were filled with many incredible moments: Ray Allen’s 3-pointer to send Game 6 of the NBA Finals to overtime, LeBron James making a game-winning layup with Roy Hibbert on the bench, Nate Robinson carrying the Bulls to a triple-overtime win and many more. One moment that might have appeared to deserve…

  14. Ray Allen opts in, will stay with Miami Heat next season

    Jun 28, 2013, 7:11 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 6

    Ray Allen hit the biggest shot of the Miami Heat’s season, you thought he was leaving? Allen probably could have made more money shopping himself around, but Allen has let the Heat know he is opting in and will stay with the team next season. Allen will make $3.2 million. If he opted out he…

  16. Ben McLemore the next Ray Allen? Victor Oladipo the next Dwyane Wade? How they answer could be telling

    Jun 22, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Ben McLemore

    Ben McLemore and Victor Oladipo are the consensus top two shooting guards in the 2013 NBA Draft, but for very different reasons. McLemore is seen as a potential superstar who needs more on-court aggressiveness to really shine. Oladipo is seen as a great role player who maximizes his talent. Even a couple seemingly benign quotes…

  17. Miami has to get bigger, better if they dream of a three-peat

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    Odds makers already have the Miami Heat as the favorites to win the NBA championship again next year — 2-1 odds at Bovada online. But if the Heat thought this title run was like climbing Mount Everest, wait until next year. The Bulls get Derrick Rose back. The Pacers are not going to get any…

  18. Mario Chalmers banks in 30-foot 3-pointer to beat third-quarter buzzer

    Jun 20, 2013, 11:08 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    Mario Chalmers, who knows something about making buzzer-beating 3-pointers in winner-take-all games, inbounded the ball with 5.2 seconds left in the third quarter, immediately got a pass back from Ray Allen and dashed upcourt unimpeded. Then, he pulled up from 30 feet to bank what has so far been the biggest shot of the biggest…

  19. NBA Finals Game 7 Spurs vs. Heat: Miami earns repeat title in dramatic Game 7

    Jun 20, 2013, 10:25 PM EDT

    Heat's James and Wade pause during a break in play against the Spurs during Game 7 of their NBA Finals basketball playoff in Miami

    The Miami Heat are back-to-back NBA Champions, but the San Antonio Spurs made them earn every last bit of it. It was a hard-fought if not always pretty Game 7, but LeBron James finished with 37 points and 12 rebounds to lead Miami to a 95-88 win. LeBron was rightfully named NBA Finals MVP. He…

  20. Game 7 between the Heat and the Spurs: Seven things to watch

    Jun 20, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's LeBron James looks at a replay as he walks up court with Spurs' Duncan during the fourth quarter in Game 6 of their NBA Finals basketball playoff in Miami

    MIAMI — The Heat and the Spurs have engaged in an epic Finals battle which will crown one of them as champions by the time Thursday night is through. In a series where neither team has been able to string together two consecutive victories, it’s even more impossible than usual to predict how one game…

  21. A look back at LeBron’s Game 7s… he wins when he gets help

    Jun 20, 2013, 9:14 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's James runs downcourt after scoring against the Indiana Pacers during Game 7 of their NBA Eastern Conference final basketball playoff in Miami

    LeBron James has never before been in an NBA Finals Game 7. Which isn’t a shock, there are not many of those. But he has been in four Game 7s before, and when you look back at them you see a pretty unmistakable pattern — he puts up good numbers, but he only wins when…

  22. Breaking down the Heat’s Game 6 comeback over Spurs

    Jun 19, 2013, 1:18 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 6

    MIAMI — For all intents and purposes, the game was over. Except that it wasn’t. The Heat trailed Game 6 of the Finals by five with under 30 seconds to play, and fans in Miami began streaming for the exits. Arena staffers in yellow shirts lined the baselines and the court across from the team…

  23. Some fans in Miami left early, couldn’t get back in to watch amazing finish

    NBA Finals Spurs Heat Basketball

    PBT’s own Brett Pollakoff tweeted this out when the Heat were down 5 with: 28 seconds left and the Heat had called a timeout. “Fans in Miami heading for the exits.” Thousands of them. Not anywhere near a majority, but enough to reinforce the stereotype. Plenty (again, far from all) fans in Miami fit the…

  24. Game 6 was not Gregg Popovich’s best night

    BKN-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT-GAME 6

    Gregg Popovich is the best coach in basketball right now. One of the best of all time. He has four rings and built a culture in San Antonio that has them in NBA Finals 14 years apart and with consistent 50+ win seasons in between. But he is not perfect. He made a couple decisions…

  25. LeBron calls Game 6 “best game I’ve ever been a part of”

    Jun 19, 2013, 10:31 AM EDT

    BKN-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT-GAME 6

    That was an epic Game 6. There was great play from both sides, huge shots by Ray Allen and Tony Parker and LeBron James and Kawhi Leonard and… I could go on and on. The players knew it was a great game, too. These are some highlights from the postgame press conferences where they talk…
