Boston, MA (SportsNetwork.

Jeff Green netted 25 points and Marcus Thornton added 21 for the Celtics, who have won three in a row on the heels of a five-game losing streak. Rasual Butler scored 22 points, John Wall had 17 points and 14 assists and Paul Pierce supplied 16 points in another game against his former team for Washington, which trailed by as many as 25 in the second half. This place will always have a place in my heart, Pierce said. The Celtics led 90-78 in the fourth quarter before Wall netted six straight points during a 13-2 Washington run. Butler capped the burst with a 3-pointer to cut the deficit to 92-91 with 2:50 remaining. A Wall finger roll with 1:12 to play got the Wizards within 94-93, but Avery Bradley nailed a 3-pointer and Greens layup with 22.2 ticks on the clock sealed the outcome. I thought we played gutsy at the end, Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. Earlier, the Celtics scored 10 points off nine Washington turnovers in the first quarter and held the Wizards to 25 percent shooting. Rondo netted six quick points as Boston raced out to a 16-4 start before settling for a 24-15 cushion following a quarter of play.

Four goals were scored in a pulsating final eight minutes at Loftus Road - the last unwitting netted by Steven Caulker, who turned the ball into his own goal to gift Liverpool a fortunate victory. A madcap finale began in the 67th minute when QPR defender Richard Dunne put Liverpool 1-0 ahead with his record-extending 10th own goal in the Premier League. Liverpools second straight win left QPR in last place and increased the pressure on its manager Harry Redknapp. Stoke came from behind to beat Swansea 2-1 in the other game, with Jonathan Walters heading in a 76th-minute winner. Liverpool climbed to fifth in the standings after an error-strewn display that heightened the concerns about its brittle defence, particularly with back-to-back games against Real Madrid coming up in the Champions League. Were coming up over the next fortnight against the best team in Europe and we have to defend better than that, said Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard, who said he was in a state of shock after the crazy finish to the match. After 28 goals in seven games on Saturday, including an 8-0 win for Southampton and a four-goal haul for Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero, theres still time for more drama in an incident-packed eighth round of the Premier League when Manchester United visits West Bromwich Albion on Monday. The frantic natture of the closing stages may spare Mario Balotelli from criticism after another below-par display from the Italy striker, capped by a dreadful miss from about seven meters out in front of an empty goal in the 61st. Montravius Adams Jersey. Balotellis performance contrasted with that of Liverpool winger Raheem Sterling, who has been the subject of headlines in the British media this week for telling England manager Roy Hodgson that he was too tired to play an international game last weekend. Sterling was ubiquitous against QPR, with his foraging runs upfield in injury time helping set up Philippe Coutinhos goal that made it 2-1 and then Caulkers match-clinching intervention. Sterling was also instrumental in the opening goal by playing a quick free kick to Johnson, whose cross was deflected in by Dunne. It was great courage and cleverness from him today, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said of Sterling. Chile forward Eduardo Vargas equalized twice for QPR, first in the 87th minute with his first Premier League goal and again in the second minute of stoppage time with a header from a corner. QPR is bottom on goal difference but Redknapp is defiant about his future at the club. I cant do any more and there isnt anyone (who) could do any better here at the moment than me, I dont think, Redknapp said. At Britannia Stadium, Swansea striker Wilfried Bony and Stoke midfielder Charlie Adam scored first-half penalties before Walters earned the hosts back-to-back wins with a powerful header from Oussama Assaidis cross.
