August 5, 2012 Updates

(Lavoy) Allen, who became a starter in last year’s playoffs, heard his coach’s plan to start Brown and Spencer Hawes in the frontcourt, but he isn’t worried. “It doesn’t bother me,” Allen said while at an appearance for a basketball showcase at the Tabernacle Baptist Church in South Jersey on Saturday afternoon. “You never know what can happen once training camp rolls around. You don’t know who’s going to do what. Coach says that now, but you never know what he’s thinking. He switched the lineup many times last year.” CSNPhilly.com

We had 150 or so voters, and we ranked all the NBA players. I'm here to apologize. We were wrong. Lavoy Allen: It's all good. If I asked you who 482 was, do you know who that was? I have no idea. Lavoy Allen: But you know who number 500 was, though, right? I do. I do. Lavoy Allen: I should thank you guys. ESPN.com

You're very big about this. But I'm telling you, we're watching you play, and emailing each other and saying, Man, we did a bad job on that. Lavoy Allen: I don't blame you guys. A lot of guys on the list hadn't played an NBA game yet. Someone had to be at the bottom. ESPN.com

With the Sixers needing to contain Kevin Garnett - who finished with just 9 points on 3-of-12 shooting - those duties fell to Allen, who performed admirably, especially as the game wore on and the Sixers drew closer. "Lavoy, once again, defensively just did a tremendous job,’’ Collins said. Boston Globe

Also on the injury list is forward Elton Brand, who is nursing a sore neck. Brand played only a bit over 15 minutes on Saturday, partially due to the injury, partially due to the effectiveness of Lavoy Allen, who scored 12 points and grabbed six rebounds in just under 20 minutes. "E.B. was struggling a little bit and Lavoy was playing great," coach Doug Collins said. "I think the guys know that at this point in time I've got to go with the guys who are playing well. E.B. is a proud guy and he's going to give everything he can [in Game 2]. If he's playing well, he'll get those minutes. When they went to a smaller lineup, it's hard to get E.B. and Spencer [Hawes] out there together." Philadelphia Inquirer
