Allen checked back into the game near the end of the third quarter, and he found himself open from 3-point range early in the fourth. He dribbled a few steps, realized he was still open, and fired up the shot.
It went in, and the crowd rose to give him a standing ovation.
“Ray is the ultimate gunslinger,” Rivers said. “You know, I was a basketball player one day. And I would’ve never taken that shot late in the game like Ray, after missing my first (five). First of all, I wouldn’t have been in. … It was just impressive. You felt like if he got a shot - I didn’t know if he was going to make it, but I knew he was going to take it.”
