Ray Allen Skips Press Session for Family Matter

Boston guard Ray Allen left Staples Center quickly after Game 5 of the NBA finals Sunday night because of a health concern involving one of his children.

The Celtics didn’t give specifics, but released a statement in which coach Doc Rivers asked that, "You please respect Ray’s privacy at this time, and we’ll keep you up to date as best we can moving forward." [Sports Illustrated]
