Slamadaday: Tony Allen On Mickael Pietrus

After injuring his knee, for the better part of three seasons it looked like Tony Allen would never get his hops back. Well, it seems that he’s finally found his internal trampoline again.

A few days after deucing on Antawn Jamison, Tony Allen was back at it in Game 1 against Orlando. After lulling the D to sleep, TA went in for the kill. His weapon of choice? The alley-oop. His route of choice? The baseline. Welcome back to the dunkosphere, Tony.

    TA!!!!! He will never hop like he used to but this is still better than most! Just last year he was timid to take off and land but now he’s bang’n on dudes like he did in college. Who says we powe??? We do..

    Sure was. T.A. has been CRUCIAL off the bench this year, saving his best for the playoffs. I questioned Doc’s decision to go w/Tony rather than Marquis. Thank God I’m not the coach. And @BostonBaller, just a bit confused-you say “he will never hop like he used to..” (which I disagree on-he still has great ups-if not better) but then you say “he’s bang’n on dudes like he did in college..” smh.

    TA’s got his legs back! The filthy dunk on Jamison was better though. The C’s need Tony’s legs off the bench.

    Nice dunk but don’t see how this was on Pietrus. He just happened to be standing close to the rim when TA came up behind him. He didn’t contest it like Jamison (unfortunately) did. Could have just Tony Allen alley-hoop!
