Re: I'd bet that Allen was told to go for the layup
Agree 100% with this post. Loved the call and it was darn near executed. Nash made a hell of a play (risky too, agressivly going for the ball). I re watched and, of course, in hindsight thought, "Man, if he would have went more upright for that lay in, would have been fouled" but he didn't because the defender was there and that was the best shot on the hoop.
