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.
