Allen had 28 points (12-25 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 2-4 FT), six rebounds, six assists, two blocks and one steal during Sunday's narrow 112-109 win over Windy City.
Allen paced all Red Claws scorers Sunday while providing a mark in every major statistical category. The former Arizona guard has become a reliable scorer in the G-League this season, averaging 18.5 points over 29 games played. In addition, the 25-year-old is adding 5.7 rebounds and 5.0 assists in each game as well.
Allen delivered 24 points (8-15 FG, 7-10 3Pt, 1-1 FT), eight assists, five rebounds and three steals across 40 minutes in Monday's 102-94 loss to the Raptors 905.
Both Allen and Anthony Bennett chipped 40 minutes of run in the loss, as the Red Claws stuck to an eight player rotation. Allen's eight dimes tied a season-high. He's averaging 24.6 points per game since the calendar flipped to 2018. While Allen has been lighting things up with Maine, his brief stints with the parent-club Celtics have been disappointing, despite minutes opportunities due to injuries to Marcus Smart and Shane Larkin.
Allen posted no statistics in less than a minute of play in Sunday's 97-96 win over Portland.
After seeing eight and then six minutes of run in his two prior games with Boston, Allen sat during Sunday's win. Allen seemed overwhelmed during his brief stints versus New York and Atlanta earlier this week and has done little to prove himself during this recent call-up. Still, he'll probably stick with the parent club until Shane Larkin (knee) or Marcus Smart (finger) returns, sometime after the All-Star break.
Allen could be in position to pick up some playing time off the bench Wednesday against the Knicks.
The Celtics will be without by Kyrie Irving (thigh) and Marcus Smart (hand) -- and Shane Larkin is considered questionable -- so Allen could ultimately end up as one of the team's only healthy guards, particularly if Larkin ends up sitting out. Regardless, Allen is still best avoided in DFS contests, as he's played only eight total minutes at the NBA level this season. The second-round pick out of Arizona made his last appearance Dec. 23 against the Bulls.
Though Allen was unheralded out of high school, he improved enough in college to draw NBA interest. Last season, he averaged 9.8 points (on 45.3 percent from the field and 42.7 percent from three), 4.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.6 steals across 30.0 minutes per game as a redshirt senior at Arizona. In signing a two-way deal with the Celtics, who have one of the deepest rosters in the NBA, Allen can spend up to 45 days in the NBA, but will largely be a G-League presence for the team.
