compiled by staff and wire reports

Boston is the NBA’s most-decorated and celebrated franchise winning 17 Championships and they’ll have a chance to win number 18 after beating Orlando 96-84 Friday night in Boston to eliminate the  Magic in six games to advance against the Lakers or Suns in the NBA Finals.

Paul Pierce (nba)

The “Big Three” of Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett won it all in 2008 and will have a chance to win another title.

Paul Pierce had 31 points and 13 rebounds, Ray Allen knocked in 20 points and Rajon Rondo scored 14 points.

Artest is a hero as the Lakers get past pesky Suns, 103-101

compiled from staff and wire reports

Lakers forward Ron Artest had a horrible shooting night for the Lakers, going 2-for-9, but still managed to be a hero. Artest is the only new player on the defending champions roster. He helped put his team one win away from the NBA finals.

Artest got into the lane and beat the buzzer with a wild miracle shot after rebounding Kobe Bryant’s missed attempt as the Lakers edged the Suns, 103-101 Thursday night to take a 3-2 lead in the Western Conference finals.

Bryant had 30 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists for the Lakers.

Jason Richardson tied the game for the Suns with a 3-pointer with 3.5 seconds left. Led by Steve Nash, who had 29 points and 11 assists, Phoenix came back from 18 points down in the second half.

The Lakers have won Game 5 the last nine straight times they’ve reached it in a playoff series, including last season’s title clincher over Orlando. Los Angeles also is the only team that hasn’t trailed in a series this playoff season.

Amare Stoudamire shows he can lead Suns over the Lakers

compiled from staff and wire reports

Since the playoffs started against the Lakers, Suns forward Amare Stoudemire has been criticzed by Phoenix fans and the national media for not being the star and leader that he is supposed to be as the team’s most recognized player.

The Suns superstar player just let it all sink in and went out on Sunday night and was relentless against the Los Angeles Lakers, matching his career playoff high with 42 points, 11 rebounds to lead Phoenix to a 118-109 victory in The Valley of the Sun, Phoenix, Arizona. The Suns have cut the deficit in the Western Conference finals to 2-1 Lakers.

Amare Stoudamire (nba)

Stoudemire’s previous career high of 42 points came against San Antonio on June 1, 2005.

Robin Lopez, whose 7-foot height was a big presence and gave the smaller Suns  much-needed inside toughness, scored 20 points on 8 of  10 shooting in 31 minutes. It was the most playing time he has seen since returning from a back injury at the start of the series. Phoenix made 37-of-42 free throws, 14 of 18 by Stoudemire. The Lakers were 16 of 20 at the line.

Kobe Bryant had 36 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds. Pau Gasol scored 23 points, but Los Angeles didn’t get as much helped from its other starters and bench as they did in Games 1 and 2.
