Sneaker Watch: Ray & Rajon Lead the Celtics

words_Nick Engvall

The critics said they were old after game one, and now after big games from Rajon Rando and Ray Allen, the Celtics emerged victorious and evened up the series. Those same critics are calling the Boston Celtics experienced today.

Despite some questionable foul calls that landed Kevin Garnett on the bench with early foul trouble. While Garnett was on the bench, Ray Allen caught fire, well, rather he was acting like himself. Allen tied his own record for most three pointers in an NBA Finals game by hitting 7 of 7, in the first half. Allen would beat the record with another three pointer in the second half to beat the record he previously shared with Kenny Smith and Scottie Pippen, on his way to a 32 point night. Rajon Rondo added his second triple double of the post season with 19 points, 12 rebounds, and 10 assists.

On the other side of the court, Kobe Bryant found himself facing the same foul troubles that Garnett faced, picking up his third foul with just over three minutes to go in the first half. Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum were the only Lakers to find any success, both of the big men seemed to score with ease, Gasol putting in 25 and Bynum dropping in 21.

With the series headed back to Boston for game 3 on Tuesday night the Lakers, suffering their first home loss of the post season, will need to win a game in the rowdy confines of TD Garden in order to get back the home court advantage.

    Monty!!

    Rondo has been killing it in the Hyperfuses all Playoffs too.

  • those hyperfuse don’t really match worth anything…but they’re pretty cool looking kicks.

    Paulie and KG are going to have to get it going if they want to win 3 more games though.

  • Nene33:

    I like that, playing with the intensity of the colors, plus with Rondo quickly becoming the new Mr. Triple-Double, anything’s allowed.

    Ray’s One6One7’s are pretty nice, and his performance made ’em shine.

    Monty’s Questions are great 8)

    And I just might need to scoop up those KG Aways, because they’re serious 8)

  • Steve:

    Rondo is a little beast and 8/11 3s for Jesus Shuttlesworth, now thats just crazy. Gonna make these one6one7s sell pretty well although they’ll still go onsale here in 2-3 month lol…

  • teemasuoka:

    Rondos shoes really stood out last night. I like the colorway on ray Allens shoes.

  • moneymike:

    Ray’s PE’s are always hot!!!!!!!!!

  • MarcSJ:

    Hyperfuse is killin’ it with bright colors. Ray took over this game.

  • Dandill23:

    I knew Ray Tre would choke in the second half but regardless he will go down in the record books for yet another thing.

    And I don’t know how Rajon Rondo’s getting away with wearing those shoes- they don’t match the uniform at all as compared to Andre Iguodala’s shoes that got banned for a gum sole. SMH

  • mike kelly:

    you guys should do a flashback of the 2008 series with a sneaker watch

  • Nick:

    Rasheed & Rondo both had green shoes on to go with the green Celtics uniforms–I thought they both matched pretty well. I was really excited to see green shoes. How often do we see that?

  • josh:

    Fisher just wears what kobe wears, cant stand him

  • orthotic:

    yeah but fisher sportin them though. anyway he’s from my hometown so that gives me another reason why I’m rooting for the Lakers.

    Gotta give Rondo, Ray and Pierce their props too, their kicks are pretty sweet.

    And look at KG whining about a call. I dont think I would call it “contesting”.
