Motiejunas scores 26, Rockets top Celtics for 4th win in row

BOSTON (AP) Donatas Motiejunas wasn't thinking about a new career high when he took an alley-oop from James Harden and hit a layup as he fell to the floor late in the fourth quarter. Preserving a Houston Rockets victory was foremost on his mind.

The big man scored 10 of his 26 points in the fourth quarter, as the Rockets withstood a strong comeback by the Boston Celtics to win 93-87 on Friday night.

"I just try and win the game. That's most important to me," said Motiejunas, who added 12 rebounds to the highest point total of his career. His basket extended the Rockets' lead back to five and enabled them to hold on for their fourth straight win.
