BOSTON -- Evan Turner wasnt waiting for his coach to call timeout. Once he got the ball, he knew he had to take the last shot. Fortunately for the Philadelphia 76ers, it went in at the buzzer. "I wasnt listening at all," Turner said. "I was just going to get it and try to get a good shot up." He drove into the key and went up for the short shot that gave the 76ers a 95-94 win over Boston on Wednesday night as they jumped ahead of the Celtics in the standings -- out of last place in the Atlantic Division. The win "is huge" for the teams confidence, Turner said. "We pulled through and came back from giving up a lead." Deciding whether to call a timeout "is one of the most difficult decisions because it seems like life is in slow motion," Philadelphia coach Brett Brown said. "Ive learned the busted play, the broken play, the random play is probably as good an environment as youre going to get often." Trailing by one, Michael Carter-Williams rebounded the ball after Kris Humphries missed a jumper with 12 seconds left. The rookie dribbled then gave the ball to Turner just past midcourt. And when Turner was guarded by a defender four inches shorter, he was in good shape. "I saw Jerryd Bayless switch on to me as opposed to Jeff Green, so I knew I had a little bit of an advantage," Turner said. He released his shot just in time to give the 76ers only their third win in 13 games. "Evan Turner has a history of doing that in those situations," Boston coach Brad Stevens said. "Thats why I thought hed shoot it." The Celtics (15-33) lost for the 19th time in 22 games. Spencer Hawes led Philadelphia (15-31) with 20 points and tied his career high with four 3-pointers. Turner had 16 points and eight assists and Thaddeus Young added 16 points. Jared Sullinger led Boston with 24 points and 17 rebounds but missed 16 of 25 shots. "He played his best game in a while but he still didnt shoot it the way that hes used to shooting it," Stevens said. "That said, we have to have great performances to win." Green had 18 points, but just five after the first quarter for Boston. Sullinger had broken a 90-90 tie with two free throws, putting Boston ahead with 3:06 left. Then both teams had trouble connecting from the line. Carter-Williams missed one of two for the 76ers, Bayless missed two for the Celtics and Young also missed two. Carter-Williams missed another one before sinking his second, tying the game at 92 with 1:01 remaining. Humphries put Boston back on top when he tipped in Sullingers missed layup with 42 seconds remaining. Philadelphias free throw troubles seemed to end when Turner made one, cutting Bostons lead to 94-93. But he missed the second and Bayless rebounded. That possession ended when Humphries missed his jumper, setting up the 76ers for the winning shot. Trailing 74-71 after the third quarter, the Celtics opened the fourth with a 15-4 run that gave them an 86-78 lead four minutes into the period. They hit three 3-pointers during the surge, two by Chris Johnson and one by Green. But the 76ers responded with a 12-4 spurt and tied the game at 90, capping it with back-to-back dunks by James Anderson and Young. Boston led 26-23 after the first quarter, but Philadelphia scored the first 10 points of the second to take a seven-point lead. Hawes began the surge with consecutive 3-pointers before Dewayne Dedmon made a layup and a dunk. An eight-point run gave the 76ers a 48-34 lead, but the Celtics cut that to 53-47 at halftime. NOTES: The 76ers made 14 of 25 free throws two nights after hitting 25 of 26 in a 124-113 loss to the Phoenix Suns. ...

Hockey systems arent that much different. We made a couple of changes in our system and I thought they identified it and executed it.The 56-year-old Cameron had been waiting a long time for this opportunity. Despite the loss, he says he will cherish the memory of his first game.Its something Ive been chasing a long time so it was a terrific feeling, Cameron said. Much the way I thought it would be with the emotions and that, but I feel really, really humble to be able to say now I coach in the NHL.As much as the Senators would have liked to get Cameron his first win, they at least felt good about their effort.Nobody spoke of it, but we took it upon ourselves to understand you want to get him his first W, said Bobby Ryan. He hasnt come into an easy situation but hes done beautifully for the last couple days and run some good practices and I think theres a lot to build on as a unit going forward.An exciting third period culminated with Trevor Lewis winning goal at 4:02. Tanner Pearson added an empty-net goal to seal the victory.Matt Greene, Justin Williams and Anze Kopitar also scored for the Kings (15-9-5). Jake Muzzin had three assists, while Jonathan Quick made 32 saves.Ryan, Mark Stone and Jared Cowen scored for the Senators (11-12-5) as Craig Anderson stopped 31-of-35 shots.Trailing 2-1, the Senators got off to a solid start in the third period to tie the game, but in less than two minutes the Kings regained a two-goal lead. Ottawa came close to completing the comeback, but fell just short.With 1:21 remaining, Cowen got a shot through traffic that eluded Quick to make it 4-3, but the Kings made the most of an empty-net as Pearson picked up his 11th of the season.Cowen, who has had his share of struggles this season, looked at this game as a fresh start.Always feels good contributing in all parts of the game especially with a fight, an assist and a goal, said Cowen. Too bad we didnt come up with a win, but its nice for me to gget that and try to bring that more often.ddddddddddddIn the opening minutes of the third, Stone jumped on a David Legwand rebound and tied the game with a short-handed goal, but 36 seconds later Kopitar — who hadnt scored in ten games — was left all alone in front and beat Anderson.Muzzin gave the Senators full marks for doing their best to claw their way back into the game, but said the Kings were just as determined.A prime example was when they got their short-handed goal and we countered right away and got that one back, said Muzzin. That was big. They had momentum going their way and we kind of shifted it back into our hands so that was big for us.To come back with a goal right away was huge, Muzzin added.Just over a minute later, with Senators defencemen Chris Phillips and Eric Gryba sprawled on the ice, Lewis put one over Anderson.The Kings jumped out to a 2-0 second-period lead before the Senators were able to cut the lead in half on a goal by Ryan.Ryan, who is playing with a broken finger, dangled the puck past Brayden McNabb and then beat Quick off his backhand. The goal had the 17,284 on hand chanting Ryans name.It felt good to get the monkey off my back, admitted Ryan, who had gone scoreless in his last seven games. But when it goes for not it kind of gets forgotten and thats OK with me.Los Angeles made it 2-0 midway through the period as Williams, who appeared to be looking for a wide-open Marian Gaborik, had his shot go in off Cody Ceci.Greene opened the scoring at 1:47 of the second as his shot from just inside the blue-line made it through traffic. The play was reviewed but it was ruled that the shot deflected into the net in a legal fashion.The Senators got off to a good start despite the first period remaining scoreless. Ottawa outshot the Kings 14-5 and didnt allow Los Angeles to register its first shot until the halfway mark of the period.Chris Neil did not play the last two periods as he was sidelined with a knee injury. It appears the injury will keep Neil out for at least a week.Notes: D Marc Methot and D Patrick Wiercioch were healthy scratches, while LW Clarke MacArthur was sidelined with the flu. The Senators were without LW Milan Michalek (upper body, day-to-day). Los Angeles D Jamie McBain, C Andy Andreoff and C Jordan Nolan were healthy scratches. ' ' '
