BOSTON, MA -- Ray Allen found his shooting touch just in time to
put the Boston Celtics within one win of the NBA finals for the
first time since the original Big Three.
Allen scored 29, hitting a long 2-pointer after Detroit came
within one point with a minute left, then he and Kevin Garnett each
made a pair of free throws down the stretch as the Celtics beat the
Detroit Pistons 106-102 on Wednesday night to take a 3-2 lead in
the Eastern Conference finals.
Game 6 is Friday in Detroit, and with a victory there or on
Sunday back in Boston, the Celtics would advance to the NBA finals
for the first time since Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parish
took them there in 1987.
