L.A. Lakers at San Antonio (9 p.m. EDT). The Spurs, who defeated the Lakers in Game 3 on Sunday night behind Manu Ginobili's 30 points, will attempt to tie the Western Conference finals at 2-2.

- Antonio McDyess, Pistons, scored 21 points and grabbed 16 rebounds to lift Detroit to a 94-75 series-evening win over Boston.

After a 94-80 home loss to Boston on Saturday, Detroit came back with a 94-75 win against the Celtics in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals on Monday night. The win evened the best-of-seven series at 2-2 with Game 5 on Wednesday night in Boston and then Game 6 on Saturday night in Detroit. The Pistons are now 5-0 in games following losses in the playoffs.

Detroit guard Richard Hamilton played in his 114th postseason game Monday night, breaking Bill Laimbeer's team record, as the Pistons beat Boston 94-75 in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals. Hamilton scored 20 points, his 71st 20-plus point playoff performance since 2003. Hamilton trails only San Antonio Spurs center Tim Duncan, who has 73 20-point postseason games during the same span.

Despite being down 2-1 to the Los Angeles Lakers in the Western Conference finals, San Antonio is happy to be at home. Following their 103-84 win on Sunday, the Spurs are a perfect 7-0 at home in the postseason. In its second-round series against New Orleans, San Antonio was also in an 0-2 hole, but the Spurs won the next two games at home before winning the series in seven games.

``They bumped us off spots and were more physical and aggressive all night. Usually the winner is the team that was more aggressive.'' - Boston coach Doc Rivers after the Celtics lost to Detroit 94-75 in Game 4 on the Eastern Conference finals. Boston is now 1-7 on the road and 0-6 when trailing after three quarters in the playoffs.
