Davis buzzer-beater lifts Boston over Magic
Adjust font size:

Glen Davis's buzzer-beating jump shot lifted NBA champions Boston to a 95-94 victory over Orlando Sunday in their Eastern Conference semifinal playoff series.

With the victory, the Celtics knotted the best-of-seven series at two games apiece, with game five on Tuesday in Boston.

Taking a pass from Paul Pierce, Davis drained the game-winner. As he was surrounded by celebrating teammates at midcourt, officials reviewed the shot to be sure he released the ball in time.

Magic coach Stan Van Gundy said his players executed the final play just as he had intended, taking the ball out of the hands of Celtics stars Pierce and Ray Allen.

But Davis came through.
