Paul Pierce and Ray Allen can’t miss, Knicks can’t defend. 

No, that’s not a video of shootaround after a Celtics practice session. That’s in a playoff game. Not just any playoff game, the first Knicks home game since 2004 and that’s how the Knicks rewarded their faithful fans. 

Sure, Ray Allen is the all-time 3-point leader who is also shooting 45% from deep. And sure, Paul Pierce is a serial killer who is tops among active players with 30+ point games at MSG. But this was inexcusable.

This defensive performance by the Knicks was beyond lethargic. Ray and Paul combined for 70 points on 25 of 37 shooting. They also combined for 14 of 19 from three. 

It’s nights like this that make me think O'Antoni needs to go.

The one point where you’ll see guys playing defense in the All-Star Game. Just kidding, even this is just for show.

Ray Allen, Paul Pierce & Kevin Durant Will Participate IN 3-Point Shootout

The NBA just announced the line up for the 2011 3-Point Shootout. Participants will include: Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, Kevin Durant, Daniel Gibson, James Jones and Dorell Wright

Here’s how each of them has done this season.

Paul Pierce, Boston Celtics:

Paul, who won last year’s shootout, is shooting 40.1% from deep this season and has hit on 73 different occasions. Not sure if he is the popular vote to repeat but his swag is definitely going to make an appearance. Pierce was really lobbying to get into the contest and he is hopeful that he and his teammate, Ray Allen, can face-off in the finals.  

Kevin Durant, OKC Thunder:

Kevin Durant is in here because he is Kevin Durant. Sure he has made 85 3-pointers this season, but he has chucked up 245 attempts for a 34.7% 3P%. That’s not terrible, but it’s not cream of the crop, either. In fact, the league’s leading scorer is the only participant that is shooting below 40% from three this season. 

Daniel Gibson, Cleveland Cavaliers: 

Boobie has connected on 79 of 180 threes this season. He’s been one of the only bright spots in a dismal Cavs season. I’m glad he has the honor of participating but haven’t the Cavs and their fans lost enough already?

Dorell Wright, Golden State Warriors:

Dorell can shoot, both in volume and accuracy. He has hit 124 threes this year good for #1 in the NBA. He’s also splashing at about a 41% clip. Both of these numbers are stellar but he has struggled significantly when David Lee hasn’t been on the floor. Last I checked, David just missed the cut for this year’s shootout…

James Jones, Miami Heat:

His 42.7% shooting and 91 made threes makes him a dark horse to take this contest. Although a lot of those makes have come from the corners and I’d be curious to see how he does around the top of the key — a spot he seldom visits. 

Ray Allen, Boston Celtics:

Ray Allen is the greatest three point shooter in NBA history. He doesn’t own the record for it yet, but he will before the All-Star break. He’s shooting a blistering 46.2% from deep and has 115 made threes on the season. If i were a betting man…

Left out of the shootout: Matt Bonner (60 3P, 50.4%), Chris Paul (56 3P, 45.2%), Jason Richardson (121 3P, 39.7%), Kevin Martin (115 3P, 40.8%), Anthony Morrow (65 3P, 43.3%), Chauncey Billups (96 3P, 44.4%) and Arron Afflalo (83 3P, 44.9%)

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

Reggie Miller practices modesty as Ray Allen is two made 3-pointers away from breaking his record

Tune into TNT on Thursday 8 PM EST to see if Ray Allen can break the record against the Lakers. 

@Suga_Shane

Ray=Made3^2: Ray Allen’s jumper is scientifically perfect. 

Ray Allen is just three 4’s away from breaking Reggie Miller’s all time mark of 2,560 made 3-pointers. Just to put that in perspective, the #3 mark for all-time made 3’s is 1,746 made 3’s. It’s occupied by — of all people — Jason Kidd.

Ray Allen and the Celtics take on the Charlotte bobcats tonight on NBAtv, giving Allen a chance to break the record. Paul Silas doesn’t want to see it happen, not against his team. Trust us, Paul, no one does.

Not that any of us NBA fans, except for maybe the boys over at http://www.eightpointsnineseconds.com/, want to see Reggie retain the title. We just want a Hollywood ending here. The Celtics play the Lakers this Thursday, in Boston on TNT with Reggie Miller doing the commentary. 

Now that would be as picture perfect as Ray’s textbook stroke.

**The game just started and Jesus Shuttlesworth has already hit one 3. 

Ray Allen is in the 3-point contest as reported by CelticsBlog.com
In fact, Ray was asked a week ago and he agreed to participate in the shootout. No news yet on if his teammate, Paul Pierce, will be asked to join as well. Pierce won the contest last season then went on to proclaim that he was the greatest shooter, ever. 
Paul wants back in this year and wants to face Ray head to head in the contest. Here is what Ray thought when asked if he’s up to the challenge:

" What do you mean am I up for the challenge?" Ray asked smiling. "Im up for any challenge. I’m always up for a challenge. When would you think I’d ever back down from shooting? Never."

If Pierce gets in the shootout as well and Rondo finds himself in the Skill Competition they should rename this weekend to the Boston Celtics All-Team Exhibition.
