NBA Roundup | Philadelphia edges Boston in overtime

The Associated PressDecember 7, 2012 

— Evan Turner had 26 points and 10 rebounds and Thaddeus Young added 17 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Philadelphia 76ers to a 95-94 overtime win over the Boston Celtics on Friday night.

Turner drove past Courtney Lee and tossed up an off-balance, right-handed shot for a 95-94 lead with 3.9 seconds left. Boston guard Rajon Rondo slipped and his ankles buckled on the last possession, costing him a chance to hit the potential game-winner, a dud ending to his sizzling triple-double.

The same two teams meet again Saturday night in Boston. Rondo had 16 points, 14 assists and a season-high 13 rebounds. Kevin Garnett had 17 points and 10 rebounds, and Paul Pierce scored 27 points. Jeff Green, who gave Boston its last lead in OT with a 3-pointer, scored 19 points.

•  Denver 92, (at) Indiana 89 | Andre Miller scored eight of his 15 points during a late 10-0 spurt, sending the Nuggets to a victory over the Pacers.

The Nuggets (10-10) have won 13 of the last 16 in this series, including seven of the last nine in Indianapolis. The 36-year-old Miller was the big reason this time.

Denver led most of the second half but found itself in an 85-82 deficit with 3:32 left.

That’s when Miller took over. He made two free throws, a layup , a 15-foot jumper and assisted on JaVale McGee’s breakaway dunk to make it 90-85 with 1:38 left, then closed the run with a 14-foot pull-up jumper.

Indiana (10-10) had a chance to force overtime, but George Hill’s 3 bounced off the rim. Paul George led the Pacers with 22 points.
