 ATLANTA (AP) -Joe Johnson shook off a poor night to hit a crucial 3-pointer with 1:07 remaining and the Atlanta Hawks forced an improbable Game 7 with Boston, beating the top-seeded Celtics 103-100 on Friday night.
Marvin Williams led the Hawks with 18 points despite missing most of the fourth quarter with a knee injury. Kevin Garnett paced the Celtics with 22 points and Ray Allen added 20.
The deciding game is Sunday in Boston. The home team has won every game in the surprisingly close series.
Cavaliers 105, Wizards 88
WASHINGTON (AP) - LeBron James compiled 27 points, 13 rebounds and 13 assists for his third career playoff triple-double, all the while helping slow Caron Butler at the defensive end, and Cleveland ended its contentious series with Washington in six games.
Wally Szczerbiak added a career playoff-best 26 points and reserve Daniel Gibson had 22, combining for 10 of Cleveland's 11 3-pointers.
James also picked up a technical foul, one of three called in a fittingly rough-at-times finale to a series that featured plenty of trash talk, hard fouls, one ejection and one suspension: Washington reserve forward Darius Songaila was barred from Friday's game by the NBA for hitting James in the face in Game 5.
Butler finished with 18 points and nine rebounds. Antawn Jamison led Washington with 23 points and 15 boards.
Jazz 113, Rockets 91
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Deron Williams scored 13 of his 25 points in the decisive third quarter, and Utah beat Houston to win the series 4-2 and knock the Rockets out of the playoffs in the opening round for the second straight year.
The Jazz were determined to avoid a Game 7 in Houston, site of their embarrassing 95-69 loss in Game 5 on Tuesday. Instead, the Jazz are headed to Los Angeles and open the second round against the Lakers on Sunday.
Tracy McGrady scored 40 for the Rockets, but could not beat the Jazz by himself and fell to 0-7 in playoff series.
