With 2:30 or so left in the first quarter, the Celtics have a completely new five on the floor. The lineup: Eddie House, Tony Allen, Darius Mles, Leon Powe and Baby Davis. Take it for what it’s worth, but that would seem to be the likely second unit for Doc Rivers this season.
Play was ragged on the offensive end, but Allen just blocked Wilie Green’s 3-pointer at the buzzer. That is exactly what the Celtics need from Allen this season.
