Ray Allen Puts in Additional Free-Throw Work

Allen’s shocking misses in Miami at the charity stripe during Game 4 forced Ray to put up some extra shots prior to tonight’s game. From the Boston Herald: “The missed free throws ate at Ray Allen so much he was tempted to head directly from the airport to the Celtics practice facility when the team touched down Sunday night. Instead, having been away from his family for four days, Allen elected to head home. But sure enough, he was here early yesterday getting up extra free throws as he tried to figure out how he missed three straight in the final 2:35 of Sunday’s 101-92 Game 4 loss to the Heat. Allen said he made 145-of-150 free throws yesterday during his stint in the shot laboratory. ‘It’s all a rhythm thing, timing, everything,’ Allen said. ‘I just wanted to get in here and just shoot and get a lot of free throws up. I hadn’t shot that many in a while. The other night I just had such a bad rhythm on it and I was trying to figure out where it came from.”’

    I was shocked when he missed those free throws

    ^Who you tellin’ lol… got to love this mans work ethic though.

    Ray is a treue professional and shows that it’s never too late in your career to work on your mechanics and tweek things a bit. I hope Rondo went with him along with a few others. Young players take note of what it takes to be one of the best in the game.

  • ramn

    reminds me of a quote from him a few years back about him shooting the ball right and not missing; the ball just didn’t go in (i can’t find the exact quote anymore and i forgot which interview it’s from).

  • Dtown

    @Ramn I know exactly what you’re talking about. It was when he was with the sonics. They had a special about him on NBATV called “The Game”. They were in the locker room after taking a beating from some team (forgot who it was) his old coach Bob Hill went over the game and said “Ray you didn’t shoot the ball well tonight” Ray said “Yes I did” Bob then replied with “You were 3 for 12″ and ray said “I shot the ball right, It just didn’t go in”… talk about confidence

    Ray missing that many FT’s is never to happen again. We witnessed history people.

  • Gabe

    Practice? We talkin about Practice?

  • barnabusb

    Kudos for him for the extra shooting, but only 150 free throws? That’s child’s play. How long did it take him? 45 minutes?

    The point is that he practiced them at all… Dude is one of the best ft shooters in NBA history. No one can go tell him to get up more practice fts

  • kudos

    Ray needs to practice more free throws. If he can’t hit em with the game on the line, he shouldnt be in the game.

  • Dtown

    You’re talking about RAY ALLEN… just in case you forgot lmao

    145 out of 150. holy %&@!

  • ray-ray

    Triple negative? I’m impressed.

  • ClydeSays

    I doubt you’ll ever see RA miss three FT in a row again. Maybe 3 in an entire game when he takes 20.

    I really hope he’s tutoring Perk & Rondo.

    they weren’t meant to go in, because wade needed to show domination in a game in all facets, including free throw defense.

  • BostonBaller

    I’m sure Kudos was joking about him not being in the game with it on the line…Bamabusb also must have been kidding…give them a break lol. Hey Bamabusb, are you from Tide country? RTR

  • BostonBaller

    How many scorers are matched up with the other teams best player on defense. Ray is playing pretty good D on Wade tonight while hitting big 3′s. It’s far from over.

  • Dtown

    Welp.. Wade has now “Gone fishing” Ray 5 for 6 from 3.. smh
