Ray Allen Admits Rhythm, Timing Off
Ray Allen has been struggling with lateral movement because of bone chips in his right ankle. But Allen had difficulty standing still in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals, going 3 for 7 at the foul line in the Celtics’ 93-79 loss to the Heat Monday night.
“I’m just trying to find my balance,’’ said Allen, who shot 1 of 7 from the floor and had 6 points. “I feel good over it, I’m just not in a great rhythm right now. I just know I don’t have good timing right now.
“The shot feels fine. If it’s short, I know that I do have less lift on it. I just take it day by day, trying to figure out what I’m dealing with. I do have restrictions. That’s why we have a great team here, why we have each other.
