If there was ever a quintessential Thaddeus Young game, it came during the second half of Friday night's wild comeback victory over the Celtics in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals at the Wells Fargo Center. After all, it was during the late stages of the game when the Celtics' once stout 18-point lead had all but been erased.

Credit Young and his kinetic energy with an assist in Game 4.

Better yet, give Young a handful of assists from deft passes and from some helpful team defense to keep the Sixers on track for the upset. With one minute remaining in the game and the Sixers' holding a two-point lead after Andre Iguodala's step-back 17-footer broke a tie, slippery quick Rajon Rondo got through the lane for a layup.

Or so he thought.
