SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Ray Allen scored 22 points, Rajon Rondo had 17 points and 10 assists and the Boston Celtics overcame a slow start to beat the Sacramento Kings 95-90 on Tuesday night.

Paul Pierce added 15 points and Kevin Garnett had 12 to help the Celtics (37-11) pull away in the fourth quarter and clinch the Eastern Conference’s best record through games of Feb. 6. That means Boston’s Doc Rivers will coach the East in the All-Star game in Los Angeles on Feb. 20.

DeMarcus Cousins and Tyreke Evans finished with 20 points apiece for a Kings team that returned to its losing form. They were coming off wins against two of the Western Conference’s elite — the Los Angeles Lakers and New Orleans Hornets — but missed out on their first three-game winning streak this season.
