You heard it here first at Hardwoodhoudini.com. Ray Allen heads into tonight’s epic NBA Finals rematch with the Los Angeles Lakers needing only one made three pointer to tie Reggie Miller’s record and two to break the record for made three pointers in a career. Allen is shooting at a historic .462% on the season which to date is the highest three point shooting percentage of his 14 year career. Allen’s previous high was during the 2001-2002 when he shot .434% as a member of the Milwaukee Bucks
The odds are in favor of Allen setting and/or breaking the record tonight. In 36 of the 51 games played this season, Allen has made at least two three pointers and has made at least one three pointer in 46 of the 51 games played.
As if the game did not need any more hype. Reggie Miller will be in the house calling the game for TNT. Said Miller via his twitter page: “For all my followers and Ray Allen’s followers, I can’t wait to be in the building Thurs evening, Lakers vs C’s, as history is made.”
History will be made indeed, add another chapter to the history books as we get to sit back and watch two of the most storied franchises, in all of sports, battle each other again and watch one of the greatest players to ever play the game achieve greatness. Allen will be forever known as one the the games best sharpshooters, but it is his work away from the court that makes rooting for him that much more special.
