Ray Allen has made himself the enemy of Boston Celtics fans for switching to one of the most-hated teams in the NBA; the Miami Heat.

Allen, the 36-year-old 3-point shooting specialist, decided to take less money for the chance to win a second NBA title.

He won an NBA championship with Boston in 2008.

Eventhough Boston could pay him more money, Allen, the former UConn basketball star, told the Heat that he would accept their $3 million a year offer and leave Beantown after five years.

Due to the NBA’s moratorium, Allen cannot officially sign any contract until this coming Wednesday.

Allen, who has also played for Milwaukee and Seattle, made a career-best 45 percent of his 3-point attempts this past season, has made an NBA-record 2,718 3-point baskets.

General manager Danny Ainge and the Boston Celtics organization are so pleased with the job that Doc Rivers is doing, that they’ve extended his contract for five years.

The new deal will keep him around to help rebuild the team which has one of the NBA’s oldest rosters especially with Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Shaquille O’Neal in the twilight of their careers.

Rivers has coached the Celtics for seven years, winning the NBA title in 2008 and reaching the finals in 2010 before losing to the Los Angeles Lakers in seven games.

The 7′-foot-1, 325-pound center in the final rounds of a fantastic career goes to Beantown hoping to add a fifth NBA title.

O’Neal signed a two-year contract worth around $3 million on Wednesday.

When this contract ends, Shaq will have played 20 NBA seasons.

O’Neal’s travels around the NBA have taken him to six teams and 15 All-Star games. He is the fifth leading scorer with 28,255 points and 14th in rebounds with 12,921 in league history.

With Garnett under contract, Paul Pierce on the verge of a new deal for four-years and Doc Rivers also returning, Boston will keep together the core of the 2008 NBA championship team for at least two more seasons.

After the recently completed NBA Finals, it was rumored that Doc Rivers would move on, Kevin Garnett would retire and Ray Allen would leave, but the key pieces remain intact.

Celtics led bye “Big Baby” Glen Davis and reserves, beat Lakers

compiled from staff and wire reports

The Boston Celtics tied up the 2010 NBA finals at 2-2, by using their dominant size inside against the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 4 to win 96-89 on their home court, Thursday.

Backup forward, Glen “Big Baby” Davis scored half of his 18 points in the fourth quarter as the Celtics bench pulled away from the Lakers while starting center Andrew Bynum did not play in the second half while he rested his sore knee.

Kobe Bryant scored 33 points and Pau Gasol had 21 for the Lakers.

Nate Robinson (nba)

Paul Pierce scored 19 points, Kevin Garnett had 13 and Ray Allen bounced back from a seven quarter shooting slump to score 12 points for Boston. That trio was on the bench for much of the fourth quarter run that gave Boston the lead for good.

In that fourth quarter, the Celtics scored 13 of 15 points during a five-minute span when Allen was the only starter on the court, mostly with Glen Davis, Rasheed Wallace, Nate Robinson and Tony Allen.
