Evan Turner hits the difficult game-winner to send Sixers past Celtics (VIDEO)

Jan 29, 2014, 10:45 PM EST

Evan Turner‘s awkward shot through contact at the buzzer to give the Sixers a win over the Celtics was anything but a layup.

Turner bumped into Jared Sullinger after crossing up Jerryd Bayless on the perimeter, and contorted enough to get a shot up just outside of the restricted area that found its way home as the final buzzer sounded.

Sullinger finished with 24 points (on 9-of-25 shooting) to go along with 17 rebounds in the losing effort, which wasn’t enough to offset a balanced Philadelphia attack that saw five Sixers finish in double figures.

    ET is having a very nice season. I think we can officially remove the bust label from him. Now, has he proven to be the franchise player he was projected to be coming out of college? Nope. But he’s far from a bust. On a good team he can be the 2nd or 3rd option. Probably the later.

    Mcw palm the ball the refs missed a call. Turnervisblucky he dint get a three point play. Sully would had foul out. 9 sec left and a no call on a palming violation isn’t this what the nba is trying to improve. No way hand checking has to be back in the rule book just by touching a guy itsba foul come on dumb ball.

    That was also a clear blocking foul on Sullinger. Not sure if they would have called it.

    Nice play though.
