Celtics Win

The Boston Celtics have tied the 2010 NBA Finals series with the Los Angeles Lakers 2-2 scoring 96-89 to win Game 4 at home.  Coming into Sunday, Boston was a -3 favorite

Backup Glen "Big Baby" Davis scored half of his 18 points in the fourth quarter on Thursday night as the Celtics bench pulled away from the Los Angeles Lakers to win 96-89 and even the best-of-seven series at two games apiece.

"Just will, that's all it is," Davis said. "This is what legends are made of, this is where you grasp the moment. ... Just play in the moment."

The Celtics' win guaranteed them a trip back to Los Angeles and averted a 3-1 deficit that has never been overcome in NBA Finals history.

"We know what to do. We know how to play. We know how to get it done," Gasol said. "And we know how important Game 5 will be, so we've just got to get ourselves mentally and physically ready ... to accomplish our mission."

Paul Pierce scored 19 points, Kevin Garnett had 13 and Ray Allen bounced back from a seven-quarter shooting slump to score 12 points for Boston.
