76ers Vs. Celtics, NBA Playoffs 2012: Final Score 92-83 As 76ers Stage 4th Quarter Comeback

The Philadelphia 76ers staged a late comeback to beat the Boston Celtics 92-83 in game four of their second round series. The 76ers opened the game by giving up an 18-3 run, and for much of the game things didn't go much better, with Philadelphia trailing 46-31 at the half. They came out of the locker room a completely different team than they went in, and the third quarter was a slow build to the fourth where they stole the game.

Down by as much as 18 at times, by early in the fourth quarter the 76ers had fought back to even things up at 63-63. They would soon take the lead, 66-65, and the game began going back and forth, with one team pulling ahead by two or three and the other evening it up again.

Andre Iguodala came up huge for the 76ers, going 3-3 on three pointers in the second half, after the team as a whole had none in the first half. He hit the last of those threes in the game's final minute, putting the 76ers up by 5 with 36 seconds to go, icing the game for Philadelphia. He was 11-21 overall and contributed 16 points. Evan Turner also contributed 16, and Lou Williams had a strong night, playing 29 minutes and contributing 15 points.

The victory ties the series 2-2, and the 76ers will head to Boston on Monday for game five.
