31-year old shooting guard Tony Allen has been looking for his shot a little bit more since the Rudy Gay trade and it has been working out pretty well for the Grizzlies. Allen has played in 5 games (all starts) so far in February and he is averaging 29.3 minutes, 10.0 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.8 steals per game. Allen is shooting 64.7% from the floor so far this month, which is outstanding. Allen has now played in 47 games (all starts) for the Grizzlies overall this year and he is averaging 27.3 minutes, 8.4 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.6 steals per game. The Grizzlies likely have no problem with Allen shooting more moving forward as they try to continue to replace Rudy Gay’s offensive output.
