BOSTON (AP) — Avery Bradley scored 25 points, Isiah Thomas had 22 and the Boston Celtics held off the Sacramento Kings 128-119 on Sunday for their ninth win in 10 games.

Jared Sullinger matched his season high with 21 points and reserve Tyler Zeller had a season high 17 with seven rebounds for Boston, which committed a season high 24 turnovers but shot 56 percent.

DeMarcus Cousins led Sacramento with 31 points. Marco Belinelli and Darren Collison each had 16 points. The Kings have lost seven of eight.

The Kings had sliced a 21-point deficit to 97-91 early in the final quarter before Bradley nailed a pair of 3-pointers and scored eight points during a 15-6 spree that was capped by Evan Turner’s 3-point play with just less than 6 minutes to play.

Sacramento closed it to five points with under 2 minutes left, but Thomas scored nine of 11 points for Boston to seal it.
