Miami Heat's Wade hugs Boston Celtics' Allen after the Heat defeated the Celtics in Game 7 of their Eastern Conference Finals NBA basketball playoffs in Miami

Dwyane Wade doesn’t really want KG calling Allen anyway


Last week we told you how Kevin Garnett was very Kevin Garnett when asked about Ray Allen — he said he hadn’t spoken to Allen since the sharpshooter signed with the Heat. That he lost Allen’s number.

Allen’s reaction? Whatever KG. It wasn’t quite a shrug, but pretty close.

As tends to happen with these kind of little media tit-for-tats, a team leader is asked about it. In this case Dwyane Wade, and he was was good with Allen and KG not talking and making nice. From Brian Windhorst at ESPN’s Heat Index.

“(Garnett) doesn’t need to be talking to our team anyway, so it’s all good,” Dwyane Wade said. “(Allen) doesn’t look too bad in a Heat uniform. At first it was weird but now I’m getting used to it.”

If Allen gets healthy — he’s not there yet — and starts knocking down open threes, it will not feel weird at all to Allen.

For me, I don’t want the Heat and Celtics liking each other. I want a little hate. It will make this season more fun.

Bradley Beal drives around, dunks over Kristaps Porzingis (VIDEO)

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.

But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
