Ray Allen warms up before Sunday’s game

Heat sharpshooter Ray Allen [1] warms up before Sunday’s game with the Boston Celtics [2] at TD Garden. Sunday marks Allen’s return to Boston for the first time since signing as a free-agent with the world champion Heat last summer.

Allen admitted that he doesn’t expect the reception in the Garden to be very warm [3] when he takes the parquet for the first time since signing with Miami.

Allen had 19 points on 5-of-7 shooting in 31 minutes against the Celtics in the season opener on Oct. 30 in Miami. That was the game most-famously remembered for the cold shoulder [4] Kevin Garnett [5] gave Allen when Allen checked in for the first time in the first quarter.
