Miller also made a memorable 3-pointer for Miami during Game 6 of the finals, connecting early in the fourth quarter moments after losing his left sneaker. Allen said he’ll look back at that shot as one of the best of this year’s run to the title, even though his shot will surely be more remembered.
“That was amazing,” Allen said. “For him to hit that shot, it was incredible.”
Allen signed with the Heat last summer, turning down more years and more money to remain with the Boston Celtics. Allen said earlier this week that he particularly enjoyed the camaraderie in the Heat locker room, especially the “Harlem Shake” video that became a global YouTube sensation midway through the season.
“When I got here, within the first two weeks, I felt like I had been here for two, three years because the guys welcomed me in so warmly,” Allen said. “They’ve been awesome to me.”
