Celtics 95 at Magic 94
Glen Davis made a 21-foot jumper as time expired to help Boston hold off a furious rally and defeat the Magic to even their Eastern Conference semifinal at two games apiece.
Davis took the pass on the wing from Paul Pierce, swished the jumper over a charging Rashard Lewis and ran to half-court, where he was mobbed by teammates, leaving the Orlando home crowd silenced.
Davis’ jumper followed a pair of free throws by Lewis that put the Magic ahead with 11.3 seconds to play.
Davis also hit a 15-foot jumper in the final minute and finished with 21 points.
Dwight Howard had 23 points and 17 rebounds, and Lewis scored 22 for the Magic.
Game 5 is Tuesday in Boston.
Lakers 87 at Rockets 99
Aaron Brooks scored a career-high 34 points, Shane Battier sank five three-pointers and added 23 points and the Rockets, without star Yao Ming, routed the Los Angeles Lakers to even their Western Conference semifinal at two games apiece.
Luis Scola had 11 points and 14 rebounds as the Rockets got exactly the team effort they needed after Yao broke his left foot in the Lakers’ win in Game 3.
Game 5 is Tuesday night in Los Angeles, and anyone who thought the Rockets were finished without their best player only needed to watch the first few minutes on Sunday, when Houston built a 22-7 lead.
Pau Gasol scored 30 points and Kobe Bryant had a quiet 15 for Los Angeles.
