Lavoy Allen comes back to earth Wednesday (Nov 12 12:00 ET )
Lavoy Allen, who had 12 points and 15 rebounds against the Jazz on Monday, had just six points, seven boards, a steal and a block on Wednesday.
Lavoy Allen busted out with a 12-point, 15-board double-double against the Jazz on Monday, adding three assists, one steal and one block in 27 minutes.
The Scoop:He easily outplayed Luis Scola tonight and his six offensive rebounds went a long way for the Pacers tonight. Allen has been extremely quiet all season and his upside isn't going to be high anyway because he doesn't block shots, so it's hard to get too excited here. School had just eight points, eight rebounds and one block in 25 minutes.
Lavoy Allen put together a nice game in 29 minutes on Tuesday, scoring eight points with 12 rebounds (seven offensive) and a pair of blocks vs. the visiting Bucks.
The Scoop:Allen has earned high praise from coach Frank Vogel since training camp and he's overtaken Ian Mahinmi (six points in eight minutes) in the backup frontcourt rotation. Neither guy has value in standard leagues while Roy Hibbert is healthy, but Allen is at least worth keeping on your radar.
The Scoop:Allen impressed Vogel enough that he bumped Chris Copeland out of the PF rotation to SF, and it sounds like he'll be the primary backup behind starter Luis Scola on Wednesday. He's only worth monitoring in deep leagues, and is unlikely to earn many minutes once David West (ankle) returns to health.
