If you thought Ray Allen wasn't bothered by the free throws he missed in the final minutes of Game 4 this past Sunday, think again:

Celtics guard Ray Allen spent a three-hour plane ride from Miami to Boston Sunday night reflecting on each of the three free throws he missed in the waning moments of Boston's Game 4 loss to the Heat.

When the plane touched down at Hanscom Field in Bedford, Allen gave a fleeting thought to going straight to the team's practice facility in Waltham to work through a rare hiccup in his charity stripe game.

"I wanted to come in when we landed, but I hadn't seen my family in a couple days," said Allen. "I got in here [Monday] and got plenty of free throws up."

Just how many did he get up? According to Allen, he shot 150 freebies Monday and connected on all but five.
