Celtics' slump continues

SACRAMENTO KINGS 105

BOSTON CELTICS 98

Forward Rudy Gay's driving lay-up capped a 22-point night as the lowly Sacramento Kings overcame the visiting Boston Celtics, who lost for the 14th consecutive time against a Western Conference opponent.

In Atlanta, the Hawks pulled off a big comeback against the New York Knicks to end an eight-game skid.

Atlanta forward Mike Scott came off the bench to score 30 points and guard Lou Williams hit two big three-pointers in the fourth quarter to help the Hawks come back from a 17-point deficit.
