Despite some truly horrific free throw shooting in the fourth quarter, the Philadelphia 76ers edged out the Boston Celtics 95-94 tonight at the Boston Garden. Evan Turner hit the game winning lay-in as time expired, moments after local favorite Michael Carter Williams arguably got away with a palming violation. Besides the final play, Carter-Williams struggled throughout his first game in the Boston Garden; scoring 10 points on just 4 of 14 shooting.
Jared Sullinger led the late-surging Celtics with 24 points and 17 rebounds, but the balanced 6ers attack (which had all five starters scoring in double digits) was just too much for the men in green. Jeff Green also had a very nice, strangely assertive at times game, scoring 18 points to go along with 6 rebounds and 4 assists.
The loss means that the Boston Celtics now find themselves at the bottom of the Atlantic Division,and tied for third worst record in the league. Matt Richissin 1/29/2014 10:13:00 PM Tweet
