You knew Phil Jackson wasn’t going to pass on commenting on Ray Allen’s potentially breaking Reggie Miller’s 3-point record without a jab or two. And he didn’t. The opinionated coach offered his thoughts on Allen, who needs two 3-pointers to break Miller’s record of 2,560.

“I got kind of a kick out of it because we don’t really celebrate 2-point baskets but somehow or another the 3-point basket has now become a really big thing,” he said today at Emerson College. “I guess because maybe there’s so many 2-point field goals. But Reggie’s going to be here. Ray’s going to be here. It’s like one stepping over the other at that time. So it’s pretty cool.”
