PHILADELPHIA - Chris Johnson stepped back, heaved up a desperation 3-pointer and watched it fall in to tie the game with 0.9 seconds on the clock. Or so he thought. As it turned out, Johnson stepped back a little too far, and the shot was discounted immediately when officials ruled he stepped out of bounds. The 76ers were awarded possession, and James Anderson made a pair of free throws a half-second later to seal Philadelphias 113-108 win over the Boston Celtics on Monday night. "Thats that," 76ers coach Brett Brown said. "His foot was out of bounds." Philadelphia led by 19 points in the second quarter, but Johnson hit 3-pointers on consecutive Boston possessions to trim the deficit to two as part of a 14-3 run to close the third quarter. After an 11-4 Philadelphia run to open the fourth quarter, Boston flirted with a comeback and got within two points several times down the stretch but could never pull even. The Sixers aided the Celtics near comeback with dismal foul shooting — they were 24 for 38 from the line. "We missed free throws, Rondo was Rondo, Johnson made some shots," Brown said. "But Im pleased we were able to find a way to win." Michael Carter-Williams had 21 points and 14 rebounds and Tony Wroten scored 20 points for the Sixers in their final home game of the season. "It was great to win at home," Carter-Williams said. "It was great to end on a positive note." Carter-Williams had a key steal and pass to Wroten in the final minutes which led to Wroten making two free throws in helping keep the Sixers ahead. "His ability to change things and lead breaks after he rebounds makes him unusually good," Brown said. "And I think he was pretty darn good tonight." Kelly Olynyk scored 28 points to lead the Celtics. Jeff Green had 27 points and Avery Bradley added 23. Rajon Rondo finished with eight points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds. "We definitely got a lot to play for, and it showed tonight. We couldve laid down when we were down," said Brandon Bass, who finished nine points and eight rebounds for Boston. "We kept fighting and made it a game." Philadelphia took three of four games from Boston in winning the season series for the first time since 2006-07. The banged-up Celtics played without Jared Sullinger (left ankle sprain), Jerryd Bayless (hyperextended right knee) and Kris Humphries (sore right knee). After missing the past two games with a strained left shin, Rondo returned to action and dominated the games first five minutes before Thaddeus Youngs elbow to the head forced him to briefly leave the game. Rondo had five assists in the first 5:08 as Boston took an early 16-7 lead. But the minute the Celtics floor general left the game, the Sixers took over and outscored the Celtics 60-34 the rest of the half. Casper Ware made a long 3-pointer to cap a 22-9 run that put Philadelphia up by four late in the first quarter. Rondo, who returned late in the first quarter, followed suit by driving for a layup and drawing a foul. He then rebounded his own miss at the line and put the ball right back up for another two to erase the lead in 10 seconds. The 76ers turned it on again in the second quarter, this time going on a 28-8 run to build a 19-point lead highlighted by Youngs steal and ensuing cross-court pass to Wroten for an uncontested slam dunk. Green led all players at the half with 14 points, but Carter-Williams paced Philadelphia with 12 points and eight assists as the 76ers took a 67-50 lead at the break.

"I mean, it looks like it," he said after the Tigers completed a three-game series sweep over Boston with their 11th straight road win, 6-2 over the Red Sox on Sunday night.

"It really comes down to the starting pitching and the bullpen," Detroits first-year manager Brad Ausmus said. "The starters have set the tempo and got us deep into the game. Weve also got some big hits. Miggy and Victor have been hitting well all season long." Xander Bogaerts had two hits and an RBI for struggling Boston, which has lost a season-high four straight. It was the first time the Red Sox were swept at home in a multigame series by the Tigers since losing four in June of 1983.

"They came in swinging the bats well, and when Jake (Peavy) missed his location, that lineup made us pay for it." Bostons David Ortiz went 0 for 2 with two walks, ending his 10-game hitting streak.

Peavy was tagged for five runs on 11 hits in six innings. He has given up at least one homer in each of his nine starts, the majors longest active streak. "We just caught a team when they were hot and they played better throughout the series than we did," Peavy said. Hunters homer, which cleared the Green Monster and left Fenway Park entirely, made it 6-2 in the seventh. Boston loaded the bases with one out in the fifth, but managed only one run to cut it to 4-2 when Dustin Pedroia scored after third baseman Don Kelly threw low to the plate on a slow grounder for an error. Grady Sizemore then lined to Sanchez, who fired to third and doubled off Shane Victorino. Mike Avilas RBI single increased Detroits lead to 5-2 in the sixth.
