Allen Shoots Lights Out To Take Home Court From Lakers

game2.action.2.jpg

After being plagued by foul trouble in Game 1 and scoring just 12 points, Allen absolutely thrashed the Lakers with his silky smooth shot. He finished with a game-high 32 points, 27 of which came in the first half. He also set an NBA Finals record for most 3-pointers in a game by going 8-for-11 from deep.

With the victory, the Celtics even the series at 1-1 and take home court advantage away from the Lakers. The next three games will be in Boston with Game 3 on Tuesday. Can Allen keep it up or is Game 3 going to be a repeat of Game 1? Either there is no denying that this series has been nothing short of exciting.

Brown getting fired right before this deadline was so Cleveland could avoid having to pay him his $4.5 million salary for this upcoming season.

Owner Dan Gilbert states “After a long and deep analysis of all of the factors that led to the disappointing early ends to our playoff runs over the past two seasons, we concluded that it was time for the Cavaliers to move in a different direction.”

Ouch. Sorry Cleveland, first Lebron and now Coach Brown ..is it time to find a new team to root for?
