The Miami Heat are returning home…for game 5 as the Philadelphia 76ers won game 4 on the shoulder of ‘Sweet’ Lou Williams and rookie Evan Turner. Both players scored 17 points. Lou Williams hit a three with 8 seconds left to put Philly up 2. LeBron James would miss a driving floater on Miami’s next possession. James finished with 31 points.

Celtics 101 Knicks 89
Bos Wins 4-0

The Boston Celtics are the first team to advance to round 2 as the swept the New York Knicks 4-0 on sunday. The Celtics built a 22 point lead and almost blew it in the fourth as the Knicks came within 4 points. The veteran Celtics squad handled the rally and closed out the Knicks. Kevin Garnett led the C’s with 26 points. Rajon Rondo had another stellar game with 21 points and 12 assists. Carmelo Anthony led the Knicks with 32 points.

Hawks 88 Magic 85
Atl leads 3-1

The Atlanta Hawks moved one win away from the second round with victory over the Orlando Magic in game 4. The Hawks built an early lead, and held on for the victory in the fourth. Orlando’s Hedo Turkoglu fumbled the ball on the last possession and missed a game tying attempt up. Jamal Crawford was once again Atlanta’s leading scorer with 25 points. Dwight Howard scored 29 points for the Magic.

Hornets 93 Lakers 88
Series Tied 2-2

The defending champs are in for a fight! The New Orleans Hornets defeated to Lakers in game 4 to even up the series. Jarrett Jack hit a game clinching free throw jumper with 9.3 seconds left to put the Hornets up 4. Chris Paul had a masterful game, recording a triple-double with 27 points, 13 rebounds, and 15 assists. Kobe Bryant led the Lakers with 17 points. Late in the fourth quarter Bryant fell victim to a Willie Green ankle breaker and rolled his left ankle. Although the roll was pretty bad, I highly doubt it’ll keep Kobe out of game 5 in LA.
