Ray Allen Unleashes as Celtics tied Series

A sweet shooting night and an NBA Finals record breaker set by Ray Allen as the Celtics won over the Los Angeles Lakers, 103-94, taking the series back to square one. Allen is very impressive in the first half, scoring 27 points, including seven 3-pointers. There is no stopping him in the first half alone as the Celtics took a commanding 14 point lead in the 2nd quarter on their way to a 54-48 lead at halftime. The Lakers used a quick run at the start of the third quarter but the Celtics keep on holding back in every Lakers' run. The game was closed throughout the third quarter and in the fourth quarter until the Celtics used a huge run late in the 4th quarter and taste the lead for good on a Rondo's jumper to give the C's a 95-90 lead. There is no turning back for the Celtics as they never let the Lakers come back into the game. Ray Allen finished with 32 points, on eight 3-pointers (Breaking an NBA Finals record) and Rajon Rondo took over the game in the 2nd half with a triple double 19 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists. Pau Gasol of the Los Angeles Lakers had another solid performance scoring 25 points while Kobe Bryant added 21 points and Andrew Bynum had his best game in the playoffs finishing with 21 points, 6 rebounds and 7 blocks.

The next three games will shift back to the TD Garden in Boston.
