Down 116-115 with under 10 seconds to go, LeBron James found Ray Allen in the corner. And the NBA's all-time leader in three pointers made did it again, while getting fouled, even.
Watch Allen's four-point play with 6.7 seconds left, to give the Heat a 119-116 victory:
Easily the biggest shot in the 10-time All-Star's young Heat career. And it shows how he can make the Heat even more dangerous than a year ago. Finishing game has been an issue for the Heat for years, and Allen is going to take pressure off LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh (who by the way scored 40 points in this game) in these situations. It's going to be a nightmare for teams to figure out what to do defensively in the final seconds when these four players are on the floor together. LeBron and Wade's tremendous ability to drive and dish makes it even more difficult to defend, and now they can dish to Allen for the corner three like we saw in this instance.
As for the Nuggets, they're off to an extremely disappointing start at 0-3, after being predicted by many to be the Western Conference's NBA Finals representative. A roster featuring Ty Lawson, Danilo Gallinari, Andre Iguodala, Kenneth Faried, JaVale McGee, and Andre Miller is too talented to not start winning a lot of games, though.
