Boston Celtics guard Ray Allen practiced today and said he expects to play in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Miami Heat tonight.  The Heat lead the series 1-0 after a 93-79 victory on Monday.

Boston coach Doc Rivers said he was considering sitting Allen down because he is dealing with injuries that is affecting his ability to shoot.  "You always try to find opportunities to get up more shots, to get your legs underneath you," Allen said after he showed up to shootaround early.

"Hell no," Allen said was his reaction when he heard the idea of Rivers sitting him down between games. "This is not the time to sit down."

Allen played 38 minutes and scored six points on 1-7 shooting in Game 1.
