For one of the first times in over a month, Ray Allen is having a good shooting game. He hit his first three-pointer of Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals early in the third quarter, but also hit a few mid-range jumpers in the first half.
Most significantly, the Heat appear to be defending Allen as if he’s completely healthy. Upon Allen getting open for that three, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra seemed incensed on the bench. Seeing as the Celtics’ offense depends heavily on the threat of Allen as much as Allen’s production itself, this is good news for Boston.
