Aging, hobbled Ray Allen comes through for Celtics
Allen fights through injury, bad start to hit more key 3s and put Celtics in conference final
By The Associated Press

BOSTON (AP) ' Ray Allen was out on the perimeter as he has been so many times over a 16-year career in which he's established himself as the most prolific 3-point shooter in NBA history.

Only this time, he was alone.

The Philadelphia 76ers were sagging off the Celtics guard, essentially daring him to shoot another 3. And when he got the ball behind the arc on the left side, with Boston leading by three near the start of the fourth quarter of Game 7, Allen showed a rare moment of hesitation before shooting.

This one was good.

Allen hit a pair of 3-pointers in the fourth quarter to overcome his early woes, and the Celtics beat the Sixers 85-75 to advance to the Eastern Conference finals against the Miami Heat.
