on my first comment i said this is the game in which marcus needs to earn his All Defensive team, DPOY stripes and boy did he respond. This game will put him on the radar for sure....just wow
Good call, he definitely put himself on the map in voters' minds.
Not sure I ever seen a 6th man win all defensive team or DPOY.
Tony Allen in 2010-2011 started 28 of his 71 games and averaged 20.8 minutes per game. In all of his six all-defense seasons, Allen never averaged more than 27 minutes per game. Only once in those six years did he finish in the top 5 in MPG for Memphis. Allen was a sixth man who was regularly included, even if he nominally was a “starter” in some of those seasons.
