After posting Ray Allen‘s dunk on Chris Bosh this morning, one of our commenters, Promoman, mentioned that his favorite Ray dunk was when he got Tracy McGrady. If you don’t remember, just over 10 years ago, the Bucks were up 2-0 in a best-of-five first-round series against the Magic trying to close it out on the road. Orlando, which had lost 11 straight games against Milwaukee, pulled out the victory despite letting a 14-point lead slip away in the last five minutes, punctuated by this dunk at the end of regulation.
Despite 27 points from Allen, it was the NBA’s newly crowned Most Improved Player who got the last laugh. McGrady finished with 42 points – including 21 in the fourth quarter and overtime – along with eight rebounds and 10 dimes.
