2010 NBA Finals Game 2 | Ray Allen Sets NBA Finals Record for 3-Point Shots MadeCategory: Basketball
Further cementing his status as one of the best long-range shooters in NBA history, Ray Allen sets an NBA Finals record by making eight 3-pointers (seven straight in the first half) in Game 2 of the 2010 NBA Finals to lead the Celtics to a 103-9 victory tying the series at 1-all.
After Allen cooled down in the second half, Rajon Rondo took over as he scored 19 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists; his fifth triple-double in the postseason.
That performance saved the Celtics down the stretch as the Lakers threatened to steal the game even leading 90-87 with 5:21 left in the game. Boston then went on a 16-4 run to steal home court advantage from Los Angeles.
Pau Gasol led the Lakers with 25 points, 8 rebounds and 6 blocks as Kobe Bryant only scored 21 points on 8-for-20 shooting. Center Andrew Bynum had his best game of the playoffs with 21 points, 6 rebounds and 7 blocks.
