PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Andre Iguodala snapped a tie game with five straight points in the final 90 seconds to help the Philadelphia 76ers storm back from 15 points down and stun the Boston Celtics 92-83 on Friday night in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.
The Sixers were a team reborn in the second half and played like a squad that refused to roll over for the championship-tested Celtics. They tied the series at 2-2 and guaranteed a return home for one more game.
Iguodala, one of the more maligned athletes in recent Philadelphia history, put the Sixers ahead 85-83 and buried a 3-pointer for a five-point lead.
Game 5 is Monday in Boston.
Iguodala scored 16 points, Evan Turner had 16 and Lou Williams added 15.
Kevin Garnett had his first bad outing in an otherwise monster series with nine points. With Garnett in a funk, so were the Celtics.

Rally For Schools On Rain Or Shine In Annapolis
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) -- Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and city schools CEO Andres Alonso are scheduled to rally with students and parents against spending reductions for schools.
The rally is set for Thursday evening in Annapolis.
The current proposed state budget reduces $94 million for education statewide. Baltimore city would lose about $15 million of that.
