Evan Turner proved he was the man for the moment, leading the Boston Celtics to a thrilling NBA victory on Thursday.
Evan Turner's last-second triple gave the Boston Celtics a surprise 90-89 win over the Portland Trail Blazers in the NBA on Thursday.
Turner's three-point shot dropped with just one second remaining and Portland's Damian Lillard could not get an effort of his own off in time as the Celtics won for just the 14th time this season.
Boston almost lost control of the ball in the dying stages but big man Jared Sullinger did brilliantly to find Turner in space.
And his shot sailed in to disappoint the home crowd in Portland.
Avery Bradley shot 18 points for Boston, while Sullinger added 17 and nine rebounds.
Damian Lillard (21 points, seven assists) was Portland's best.
Reigning NBA champions San Antonio were also a surprise loser, as a Derrick Rose-inspired Chicago Bulls beat the Spurs 104-81.
Rose hit 22 points and Pau Gasol chipped in with 12 and 17 rebounds.
Six of Chicago's players scored in double figures, while Spurs' top scorer - Kawhi Leonard - shot all of his 16 points in the first half.
Spurs coach Gregg Popovich lamented his side's display and said they played "embarrassing basketball".
Chicago had lost six of their last eight matches, prior to their victory.
Elsewhere on Thursday, the Los Angeles Clippers thrashed the Brooklyn Nets 123-84, with Blake Griffin (24 points) leading the way.
And the Utah Jazz held on for a 101-99 win over Milwaukee, despite the Bucks scoring the game's last seven points.
