Ray Allen picked the perfect time to snap out of his shooting slump.
Allen made a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 2 seconds left and finished with 30 points, leading the Boston Celtics a 118-115 win over the Chicago Bulls in Game 2 of their playoff series Monday night.
Ben Gordon nearly carried Chicago to a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. He scored with 12.3 seconds left to tie it, and had a playoff career-high 42 points. Then Boston set up a play for Allen, who took a pass from Rajon Rondo and connected from the right side.
Allen had just four points on 1-for-12 shooting in Boston's 105-103 overtime loss on Saturday.
The next two games of the series are scheduled for Chicago on Thursday night and Sunday.
