Ray says record-breaker was 'money'

From the moment it left his hand, Ray Allen knew he had launched the shot that would put him in the record book. The 3-pointer that went through the basket in front of the Celtics bench gave him 2,561 3-pointers in his career, one more than Reggie Miller. 

 

"When I got the ball and let it go, I felt so good behind it that once ball went in air I knew it was good," Allen said of his historic trey with 1:48 left in the first quarter. 

 

It was Allen's fifth 3-point attempt on the night, after tying the record just three minutes earlier. He had two 3's rim out before the record-setter. 

 

"That one, it was like, 'This is money.' It was definitely a magical moment," Allen said. "It was a great moment. I'll remember it the rest of my life. It's a moment that will stay with me forever."

Shot down: Lakers spoil C's 3-party

Kobe Bryant scored 12 of his 23 points in the third quarter while Pau Gasol added 20 as the Lakers wiped out a 15-point first-half deficit and beat the Celtics, 92-86, on a night when Ray Allen became the all-time 3-point field goal leader in NBA history. 

 

With the crowd in a frenzy from the start, the fans were sent into full-fledged pandemonium with 1:48 when Allen took a pass from Rajon Rondo on the fast break and drilled a trey from well beyond the arc for 3-pointer No. 2,561 in his likely Hall of Fame career. The crowd exploded and the Celtics rode the energy to a 45-30 lead midway through the second. Rondo finished with 12 points and 10 assists. 

 

But the Lakers went on a 14-4 run to get back into the game before halftime. Then, the visitors opened the third quarter on a 10-0 run to take the lead. Bryant, who took only three shots in the first half, led the charge back and helped the Lakers to a 75-68 lead...

3-for-all time: Allen passes Miller for record

Ray Allen hit a 3-pointer from right wing with 1:48 left in the first quarter to pass Reggie Miller for the most 3-pointers in NBA history with 2,561. After the record-breaking basket, Allen went over and gave a hug to Miller, on hand courtside to broadcast the game nationally on TNT.

 

Allen tied the record with a trey from the left top of the circle with 4:15 left in the first quarter. The crowd rose in anticipation on each 3-point attempt by Allen on the night. Allen's first attempt came from the left baseline with 7:24 left in the first quarter. 

 

Miller had held the record with 2,560 since retiring after the 2004-05 season. Miller posted the record over a span of 1,389 games. Allen needed just 1,074 games to pass Miller. Allen's first 3 came on Nov. 1, 1996, at Philadelphia, a game his Bucks won.

Rivers on Sloan: 'It caught us all off guard'

The reaction to the surprise announcement that Jazz coach Jerry Sloan has resigned was one of shock. "It caught us all off guard," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. "He’s been this stable guy in the league and he’s been there, like this rock. And the rock is gone. It’s like your franchise moved or something. It’s strange. We’re so used to having him here in this league. We’ll have to get used to it." 

 

Lakers coach Phil Jackson also was surprised. "We’re all kind of sad," Jackson said. "We’re losing a big figure from our game. A guy who kept his team afloat for many years."

Delcarmen signs minor lg deal with Mariners

Former Red Sox pitcher Manny Delcarmen signed a minor league deal with the Mariners that included an invitation to spring training, the Mariners announced. Delcarmen, 29, is coming off a season in which he struggled with the Sox and then, following an Aug. 31 trade to the Rockies, in Colorado. He had a 4.99 ERA with a career-low 6.5 strikeouts per nine innings and a career-high 5.5 walks per nine innings in 57 appearances.

 

However, Delcarmen is just a couple of years removed from having been one of the more effective middle relievers in the American League. In 2007-08, he had a 2.81 ERA for the Sox with 8.6 punchouts per nine innings.

 

The Hyde Park native spent more than 10 years in the Red Sox system after being drafted by his hometown club in the second round of the 2000 draft. While he emerged as an important setup man for the Sox in recent years, his struggles in 2009 and 2010 led to the trade that shipped him to...
