The Milwaukee Bucks are celebrating their 40th anniversary tonight during a home game against the Orlando Magic. Celtics guard Ray Allen is a former Buck who was voted the third best player in the franchise’s history recently. While Allen couldn’t attend the Bucks festivities because of the Celtics’ game tonight against New Orleans, the Bucks do have tape of his thoughts on the franchise that will air tonight. … Celtics coach Doc Rivers said “the most important thing” the rest of the regular-season is getting reserve guard Tony Allen playing at a high level. Allen, who missed the last 48 games last season due to left knee surgery, was averaging 6.3 points and 2.2 rebounds entering last night’s game against New Orleans. “I got to do a better job with him,” Rivers said. “I know he can play.” … The Celtics have canceled morning shootarounds for all three home games this week and have had workouts late afternoon instead to give his players more rest and are expected to do same for tomorrow’s game against Miami. “I don’t like keeping them on the same schedule,” Rivers said. “We’ll got three or five games with no shootarounds and then we’ll have shootarounds and no practice to keep things interesting. It’s good to keep changing. Either one has been good with the rest.”
