Ray Allen -- Victim of the SteakGate Curse!

6/9/2010 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Boston Celtics superstar Ray Allen was ice cold in last night's loss to the Los Angeles Lakers -- missing practically every single shot -- but there's only one logical explanation for his terrible performance ... SteakGate!!!!

SteakGate began back in 2008 -- when Paul Pierce had a fancy steak dinner before a big NBA Finals game ... and then choked (his performance, that is) the very next night.

Now, the curse has struck again ... because Allen feasted on a delicious buttery steak from Ruth's Chris in Beverly Hills on Sunday night -- hours after he set the record for hitting the most 3-point shots in a Finals game -- and then tanked the following game!!!

Back in '08, NBA Commish David Stern laughed at the idea -- but after last night's PROOF, we gotta ask ...

I was totally thinking of TMZ last night when at one point they were saying Allen was 0 for 13 in shooting, 0 for 7 in threes. You guys are amazing in covering the news, but i didnt know you were psychics!

He should have went to Mastros and had a Bone-In Filet. Ruth Chris sucks. Of course that screwed him.

This makes no freaking sense.. How is this a curse exactly? When Pual Pierce did this in 2008 His team went on to win the championship... What exactly is the curse? Anyone? Anyone?

what is he doing? steak takes forever to break down and so does not give the body energy to recover. he should - and any athlete - should learn from tennis players about what to eat. they eat alot of fish, pasta and chicken - items that allows for a faster recovery.

I believe Ray Allen is a vegetarian... Are you sure he had steak? or just ate at a steak house?

Well, I guess Paul Pierce is still choking from that steak he ate in 2008. Ray's body had one whole day to recover from eating steak on Sunday- In fact he probably took a massive dump the next day to clear the old pipes. I eat steak every day with a nice bottle of cold beer, and I have the energy and reflexes of a young Lion. Roarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!
