Tony Allen’s awesome dunk

There were a number of “wow” moments in the Celtics’ demolition of the Nets Wednesday, including a 71-35 halftime lead, Rajon Rondo’s behind-the-back bounce pass and Bill Walker’s thunderous slam over Josh Boone.

But the best was Tony Allen’s dunk — he actually had to duck his head so as not to bonk it on the backboard — off a lob from Paul Pierce.

The video below includes three angles of the dunk, which made top plays segments on both ESPN and NBA.com (which listed it as the No. 1 play of the day Wednesday).
