BOSTON, Massachusetts - Evan Turner scored the go-ahead layup and drained a couple of key free throws down the stretch as Philadelphia held on for an 82-81 win over Boston to even their NBA Eastern Conference playoff series at 1-1.
Turner drove to the basket, was knocked down but still made the layup as he was falling under the basket to give the upstart Sixers a 76-75 lead with 40 seconds left in the fourth.
It put Philadelphia up to stay and came after a flurry of threes by both teams that had the score seesawing back and forth.
LONDON - Wales are leaving no stone unturned in their attempt to beat the Wallabies in Australia for the first time since 1969.
Although the Six Nations champions have a Millennium Stadium appointment with the Barbarians in Cardiff on June 2, their probable Test starting team will already be in Brisbane.
A group of 15 players, led by defence coach Shaun Edwards, will set off for Australia two days before the Barbarians encounter, with the 19 remaining squad members joining them on June 4 ahead of the first Test at Suncorp Stadium on June 9.
AUCKLAND - Glen Fisiiahi will come in at fullback in one of two changes to the Warriors' squad to face Wests Tigers in Sydney on Friday night.
Fisiiahi, who has been in superb try-scoring form for feeder club the Auckland Vulcans, will make his third NRL appearance of the season, with Kevin Locke and Jerome Ropati unavailable because of injury.
Locke had been a chance to return to the No.1 jersey from a sternum complaint but was ruled out yesterday.
SYDNEY - Finally, brothers Glenn and Brett Stewart will line up alongside each other in the sky blue of NSW.
It is a coming together, seemingly five years in the making, since Brett made the first of his five State of Origin appearances for the Blues.
Glenn's three games have been spread out from 2009 to 2011, but never have the two been side by side.
SYDNEY - Manly have expressed surprise at Anthony Watmough's omission from the NSW State of Origin team with coach Geoff Toovey denying the NRL club told Blues mentor Ricky Stuart he was unable to train.
Watmough, who's been a regular in the Kangaroos side and a consistent Origin performer for the last two years was overlooked by Stuart in favour of St George Illawarra back-rower Ben Creagh.
Men to watch
BRISBANE - Wallabies back-row greats Simon Poidevin and David Wilson believe outstanding young flankers Liam Gill and Michael Hooper will drive each other to immense heights like George Smith and Phil Waugh a decade ago.
Queensland teenager Gill and Brumbies tyro Hooper have made such a mark in their first full seasons of Super Rugby that they, not David Pocock nor Springbok Heinrich Brussow, lead the ball-pilfering statistics.
BRISBANE - The Brumbies will host Six Nations champions Wales in a midweek match designed to keep the Australian conference leaders fine-tuned for the Super Rugby finals tilt.
Wales will have an extended squad in Australia for next month's three-Test series against the Wallabies and can be expected to use a second-string line-up at Canberra Stadium on June 12 - three days after the first Test in Brisbane.
The clash will provide a boost for the Brumbies who sit eight points clear of Queensland on the Australian conference with six rounds remaining.
