Ray Allen made his return to the Celtics lineup in Boston's Game 3 overtime win against Atlanta. The 16-year veteran will play once again in Game 4 as the Celtics attempt to take a 3-1 advantage in the best-of-seven series.
Although Allen had not played in more than three weeks, Doc Rivers had him in for 37 minutes in Friday's hard-fought win.
Allen got off to a hot start, making four of his first six shots. He finished the night with 13 points on 6 of 12 shooting. The all-time leader in made 3-pointers was never able to get on track from behind the arc, though, missing all four of his attempts.
"His legs looked shot," Doc Rivers said of Allen late in the game.
Rivers confirmed that Allen will be available tonight and will once again have no restrictions on his playing time.
