A contingent effort, including big shots by Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo in the final two minutes, sealed a huge win for the defending champions.
Unlike in Games 2 and 3, Philadelphia's shooting took a hit tonight and they were unable to respond to Boston's steady and efficient performance. With two losses on their own court, Philadelphia is forced to stave off elimination in Game 5. They must count on yet again big and powerful performances by Holiday, Bynum, Hawes (who struggled tonight) and Young. Evan Turner chipped in, but came nowhere near to making a similar impact he made in Game 2.
Tonight, the defending champions proved they're in to win it, 102-97.
