Lakers Vs. Celtics Score: Ray Allen Breaks Record, Boston Out-Plays LA In The First

With just over four minutes left in the first quarter, Ray Allen hit his 2,560th career three-pointer, tying the great sharp-shooter, Reggie Miller. With just under two minutes, he made history. After a brief trip to the broadcast table to hug Miller, Allen resumed his game. Aside from all the pressure to hit the record-breaker, Allen shot 5-9 from the field and led the Celtics with twelve points in the quarter.

For the Lakers, Andrew Bynum both led the team with six points, and Pau Gasol hauled in four rebounds. Kobe Bryant is having a noticeably quiet night, with just two points in the quarter. Los Angeles seems to be having ball-handling problems, committing five turnovers that resulted in six points for the Celtics. They are, however, vastly out-rebounding Boston 13-5.

It was an emotional quarter, and during the break the arena recognized Allen's achievements and he spent time shaking hands, hugging his family and kissing babies. Now that that's over with, perhaps the focus will return to the game at hand!
