Found January 07, 2012 on Celtics Locker:
The Celtics really laid an egg last night as they only scored 25 points in the first half.  The Celtics only shot 39.4% from the floor last night and they were outrebounded 47-36, which helped do them in.  Ray Allen led the way for the Celtics in this game with 23 points and 3 rebounds.  Kevin Garnett (12 points, 6 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 blocked shot) and Rajon Rondo (11 points, 5 rebounds, 9 assists and 3 steals) also had solid games for the Celtics last night.  Paul Pierce only shot 3 of 17 from the floor in this game, but he still finished up with 10 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists and 1 steal.  The Celtics are now 4-4 on the season.

Ray Allen Highlights vs Pacers

Returning to the lineup after missing one game due to flu-like symptoms, Ray Allen provided the only consistent offense for the C's.  Once again, Ray shot the ball amazingly well.  Check out the highlights below of Ray's performance.  

Ray Allen expected to play tonight against Indiana
