TheAlumWatch: Ray Allen is amazing edition

In the first entry of TheAlumWatch, I noted that Ray Allen needed to improve on his abysmal game 1 performance (2-9 fg, 0-4 from 3) if the Celtics were going to win without Kevin Garnett in Game 2. Allen went off last night, shooting 7-9 from behind the arc as the Celtics crushed the heat 106-77. He scored 25 total points and grabbed five rebounds as well. The two teams will meet next on Friday, when Boston travels to Miami for game 3.

Kevin Ollie, a teammate of Allen's from back in their UConn days, also saw his team in action last night, as the Thunder fell to the Lakers. Much like game 1, Ollie was a DNP. I'll only note that the Thunder also lost that game. I cannot prove their is a correlation, but I can't prove there isn't one either.
