During a timeout, a group of kids were doing a spiffy MC Hammer dance routine on the hardwood. Allen, heretofore best known as a Grizzlies' defensive stopper and whose name hardly engenders fear as would Kobe or LeBron James, wandered through the middle of the boogie and immediately drew loud protests from the fans. He didn't do this maliciously. In fact, when he realized his error, he shook one dancer's hand. Too late. Every time Allen touched the ball, he was booed. "I was sitting on the scorer's table when the Junior Jam Squad was dancing, and they were killing the MC Hammer rendition," said Curry, explaining what he saw at the crime scene. "I saw him kind of walk out, and it was like slow-mo because I don't think he realized where he was walking. He was kind of locked in the moment, and they were still dancing, and our fans were obviously protecting the Warriors' ground. It was pretty funny." San Francisco Examiner

Tony Allen took to Twitter on Monday to give fans a video peek at how hard he’s working to return from a left hamstring strain. However, the Grizzlies’ veteran swingman will sit out at least another week with the injury and his return to action before the playoffs begin seems questionable. “I’m trying to do all I can do to get healthy,” Allen said Monday after missing the past four games. “If I was 100 percent I’d be playing. I feel bad that I can’t go out there. I feel like I’m energy. I’m a spark plug. My enthusiasm plays a role into us being successful. It hurts my heart not to be out there. I’m frustrated because the injury comes at a bad time because I felt like I was in a good rhythm. It’s a minor setback for major comeback.” Memphis Commercial Appeal
