Heartbreak. Heartbreak. Heartbreak.
That’s the only way to describe Ray Allen’s 11th-hour three-pointer to put the Celtics up 100-99 with .5 seconds left in the game in the Sixers’ last night defeat. How, HOW, could you not expect Allen, a 40-percent-career three-point shooter, to have the ball? I know Thaddeus Young got tripped up on a double pick, but that split second Allen had to set his feet and set his sights on yet another last second game-clincher should never have elapsed.
This is just another heart-wrenching lowlight to add to the 76ers’ reel, after the Spurs’ and Mavericks’ buzz-beater antics of this season. At least the young team more than held its own in the (Garnett-less) contest, which is not an easy task.
