VIDEO: Dwyane Wade's Block Of Ray Allen Was A Critical Turning Point

Mark this play down in your notebooks, virtual or real. Up five, the Celtics got a steal, and Ray Allen came in against Dwyane Wade on the fast break. A healthy Allen finishes without any problems. A banged-up Allen fighting through an ankle injury does this instead.

The Heat recovered the ball, and Mario Chalmers converted on a layup on the other end to cut the lead to three points. This is the sad reality the Celtics face in this series. There's really no margin for error.
