NBA Playoffs 2012, Celtics Vs. Heat Game 2: Dwyane Wade Blocks Ray Allen In Pivotal Play

The Boston Celtics were rolling along in the third quarter of Wednesday night's second game of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Miami Heat. It looked like the Celtics were about to extend their lead when a stolen ball sent Ray Allen down the court on a fast break against Dwyane Wade.

And then Wade did this.

A healthier Allen, rather than the one fighting through an ankle injury, would have had no problems with that shot. Instead, Wade's blocked shot turned into a Mario Chalmers layup at the other end of the court, cutting Boston's lead down to three points.

Chalmers' basket was the start of an unanswered 12-point run that gave the Heat a lead. At the end of the third quarter, Miami leads Boston by a score of 81-75.
