Allen scored 15 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists during the game, meaning that he has scored double digits during every game he’s played this season.
So far in 2023-24, Allen has averaged 12 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 2.1 assists.
The season started in a rough way, with Allen missing the first five games of the year due to an injury.
But when he came back, he was looking in prime condition.
Allen is a crucial part of the team’s plans and can assist the offense and especially the defense.
Allen started his journey to 5,000 career points back with the Brooklyn Nets and has come a long way since then.
He did great work with the Nets, but his career took on a whole new life when he moved to the Cavaliers.
Since coming to the Cavaliers, he has averaged 14.2 points and 10 rebounds.
He has been welcomed with open arms by the loyal fanbase, which envisions Allen as a part of the franchise for years to come.
After these three wins, that fanbase has become very excited about the Cavaliers.
Next up, they will square off against the Philadelphia 76ers, Miami Heat, and Los Angeles Lakers.
And Allen’s journey to 6,000 career points, and beyond, will continue.
