The Miami Heat visited the Boston Celtics yesterday in a game that marked Ray Allen's first return to the TD Garden since he left for Miami. 

The guard wore green between 2007 and 2012 and was a part of the Big 3 (with Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce) that took the NBA by storm and went to two Finals, coming within only one game of winning two titles. 

Allen left the Celtics after a disappointing 2011-2012 season, in which he lost his starting spot to the defensive specialist Avery Bradley
