So much for any concerns about Grayson Allen’s lingering injuries.
The Duke standout looked plenty explosive throwing down this vicious one-handed slam on Saturday during the first half of Duke’s matchup with UNLV.
Allen, a preseason All-American who averaged 21.6 points last year, has been hampered by a toe injury and other unspecified ailments the past few weeks. Before Saturday, he was averaging 15.9 points and shooting only 35.7 percent from the field, a drop-off that many believe is related to those injuries even if he has refused to make excuses so far.
Maybe Allen is feeling better. Maybe UNLV’s porous defense is playing a role. Whatever the reason, the Duke guard has looked much better Saturday, scoring a career high 34 points on 12-for-16 shooting including one ferocious dunk.
