Halftime: Celtics 54, Lakers 48

Welcome to the Ray Allen Show. The Boston Celtics guard scored 27 points in the first half of Game 2 tonight, making a Finals record seven 3-pointers on eight attempts. He was 7-for-7 until the closing seconds of the half, when 7-footer Andrew Bynum ran out on him and forced a miss. The Lakers had no clue how to stop him, although they did a pretty fair job on everyone else, which helps to explain why they were only trailing by six by halftime. Allen also drew a questionable offensive foul on Kobe Bryant, his third. Bryant scored 11 points in the half. Pau Gasol continued his mastery of Kevin Garnett, scoring 14 points. Garnett had more fouls (three) and points (two). Ron Artest had a struggle in the first half, scoring two points on 0-for-5 shooting. He also made only 2 of 6 free throws.
