NBA Finals, Game 4: Can The Lakers Go For The Jugular - Lakers-Celtics series

Posted by Diana Yusuf on Friday, June 11, 2010

Glen Davis led a charge from Boston's bench in the fourth quarter and the Celtics downed the Los Angeles Lakers, 96-89, to even the NBA Finals after four games. Davis finished with 18 points, nine of which came in the fourth quarter. Nate Robinson also came off the bench for 12 points, half of which were in the last period. It essentially creates a best-of-three series. Game 5 is Sunday night again at TD Garden. After that, the series will end in Los Angeles. On Tuesday, Davis had eight points in the last quarter of a 91-84 loss, but the rest of Boston's bench was held scoreless in the period. It was a much different story in Game 4, as Boston held a 36-27 overall scoring advantage in the last period. The Celtics had 21 points from their reserves in the final quarter.

Paul Pierce ended with 19 points, while Kevin Garnett scored 13 for the Celtics, who were 12-of-19 overall from the field in the game's final 12 minutes. Kobe Bryant went 6-of-11 from beyond the arc and ended with 33 points for the Lakers. He also had seven of his team's 16 turnovers. Pau Gasol chipped in 21 points and six boards.
