And while Rondo sat due to a suspension, Allen remained on the shelf with a nagging ankle injury. Head coach Doc Rivers offered up his status for Game 3 recently, and the team still doesn't know whether or not Ray will be good-to-go Friday night.
Doc still unsure if Ray Allen will be available for Game 3: "It's frustrating for Ray. He's doing everything he can. It's a tough one."— Boston Celtics (@celtics) May 3, 2012
Allen, who missed 20 regular-season games due to various ailments, averaged 14.2 points per game this season, while shooting a career-best 45.3 percent from beyond the three point line. The Celtics have made just three three-pointers in two games thus far in the playoffs.
