Ray Allen returns to Boston

January 27, 2013 17:56:04 UK

All eyes will be on the TD Garden in Boston on Sunday afternoon when Ray Allen and the Miami Heat play the Celtics.

Ray Allen will be up against his former Celtics team-mates on Sunday.

Allen, who joined Miami as a free agent, is likely to get a heated reception from the partisan Garden crowd who remain unhappy that their long time favorite made the move to Boston's biggest rival of the past few years.

Miami comes into the game with a four-game winning streak after defeating the Detroit Pistons 110-88 on Friday at the American Airlines Arena.

Allen had 11 points off the bench in support of LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade who combined for 66 points as the Heat shot a gaudy 55% from the field.

Conversely the Celtics have a season-high six-game losing streak having fallen to the New Orleans Hornets, Chicago Bulls, Detroit Pistons, Cleveland Cavaliers, New York Knicks and Atlanta Hawks over the past 10 days.

Atlanta is also in action on Sunday when they travel to Madison Square Garden to take on the New York Knicks. The Hawks have won their past three outings and trail the Heat by four and a half games in the Southeast Division.

Meanwhile the Knicks limp home after a complete thrashing at the hands of the 76ers on Saturday losing 97-80 in a game that wasn't that close at the Wells Fargo center in Philadelphia.

Jrue Holiday was 16-of-25 for 35 points and dished out six assists and grabbed five rebounds in an excellent all-around game.

The Heat are 1.75 to win this season's NBA Championship while the Knicks can be backed at 1001.00 and the Hawks at 7501.00.
