A True Mark of a good Marksman

He stays on his target regardless of the weather he doesn’t even go to the bathroom. He moves in a swift and delicate position a marksman or a sharpshooter which goes by the definition as a skilled shooter at an object with exactness; a good marksman.
Ray Allen struggled in the playoffs all series long and the physicality of the game is slowly taking toll on Allen’s deadly shooting.
Ray holds the record for most three points field goal made in a regular season got into a slump against Atlanta and Cleveland which could have cost the Celtics Cinderella season end but Ray dish some assists and played good defense to fill in the hole he has dug into. Allen has the quickest release I have ever seen in the NBA he has the perfect stroke which makes it very impossible to missed shots.
He prides himself in his shooting and with all the eulogizing Allen still routinely goes to the game three hours before tip off. Practicing his stroke and mimicking some moves he can use in the game.
Ray Allen needs to be aggressive coming into Game 1. There would be high picks, set plays for the sharp shooting guard and needs to get out of the slump fast because Boston needs him. KG and Pierce carried most of the offense when Ray got into trouble but they needed Ray now against the Lakers.
When you’re shooting bad the only way to do is to shoot your way out of it. Ray will just have to keep shooting and Doc Rivers don’t mind Ray doing his way. Allen knows very well how to deal with his slump… to shoot and shoot until it goes in…a true mark of a good marksman.
