Sonics guard Ray Allen was selected to make his sixth NBA All-Star Game appearance
by the NBA on Feb. 9. Allen scored eight points in 18 minutes off the bench, but MVP LeBron James and the four Detroit Pistons selected for the game led an East comeback that produced a 122-120 victory. Allen struggled to find the range from 3-point distance, missing all seven of his 3-point attempts.

Allen couldn't find that same touch in the Finals, however, scoring 15 points to fall short of Gilbert Arenas' 16 and Dirk Nowitzki's 18. Allen's 34 combined points were still the highest scored by any competitor.
