If At First He Doesn't Succeed, Just Give Him Another Shot. Literally.
Despite strugging mightily in game 1 and missing the potential game-tying shot in overtime, Ray Allen was counted on to take the potential game winning 3 pointer with 2 seconds left in the 4th quarter to lead the Celtics to a 118-115 victory over the Bulls. That ties the series at 1-1 as the teams head to Chicago.
Allen only scored 4 points in game 1, and was ice cold, shooting 1-12 from the field and 0-6 from beyond the arc. In game 2, however, he scored 30 points on 50% shooting, and went 6-10 from 3-point land.
Rajon Rondo also had an excellent game, and already had a triple double in the 3rd quarter. He finished with 19 points, 16 assists and 12 boards. He was the Celtics' best player in game 1 as well, when he dropped 29 points with 7 assists and 9 rebounds.
The Celtics will need to win at least one in Chicago to win the series now. The first two games have both been amazing games, and we can only hope that it continues. Game 3 is in Chicago on Thursday at 8pm EST on TNT. Don't miss it.
