Ray Allen scored 35 points tonight, leading the Celtics over Brandon Roy and the Trailblazers. Allen he was happy to get a win, but he still sees room for improvement.
“For myself personally, I still feel like there were some shots out there that were going in and out for me,” said Allen. “We played some great basketball out there today. Things didn’t always go our way but everybody stuck with it.”
After coming back from offseason ankle surgery, and then experiencing a pinched nerve in his neck, Allen said his improved health was a big factor in his play tonight.
“Everything I do is about consistency, routine, and just taking care of my body,” he said. ” I do feel like I’m turning the corner, though, being able to feel good out there on the floor after everything I’ve gone through early.
“Tonight was probably the best, physically, that I’ve felt [this season].”
