Allen fights through difficult time 06.14.10 at 1:09 am ET

As soon as Ray Allen walked off the floor Sunday night following the Celtics’ Game 5 win, he was greeted by his son Walker, who had a giant smile on his face. The night was an extra cheerful one for Allen, because he was forced to rush his son to the hospital early Saturday morning when Walker’s blood sugar dipped to an unsafe level. Following the win, Allen spoke to the media about a difficult 48 hours.

“It’s just tough to deal with with my son having diabetes, you know,” Allen said. “You do everything you can, but his body just wasn’t operating correctly. And as a family, we try to figure out what you can do at home. And it got to a point where it was about 12:45, 1 o’clock at night, he wanted to fall asleep, but we couldn’t let him fall asleep because his blood sugar was dipping into the 50s and 40s.”

Walker’s blood sugar dipped so low, he had to be rushed to the hospital around 1:30 in the morning.

“As parents, you try not to panic and try not to get unnerved,” Allen said. “We got him to the hospital, we got him situated, so he’s better now. And hopefully, we can keep him at the point he is now.”

Ironically, Allen found out his son was diagnosed with diabetes before Game 5 of the 2008 NBA finals. This time around, Allen was forced to go through an eerily similar experience. But in the end, everything turned out OK, and his son was able to attend the game.

“It meant a great deal to me because he doesn’t like missing games. Even if all the kids stay home, he wants to be at the games and he wants to wear green.”

Allen was excused from practice on Saturday but still attended. He finished Sunday’s game with 12 points, three rebounds and two assists. He was 0-for-4 behind the 3-point line.
