Kyrie Irving led the way with a triple-double. His first was with Cleveland on February 28, 2014, against Utah.
The fact that Bagley is going to play in Thursday's game is certainly good news for the Kings, who are now holding the No. 9 spot in the Western Conference standings with a 33-33 overall record.
The Sacramento Kings have had their bright spots this season, but they're now in a bit of a slump as they've lost seven of their last 10 games and they will be looking to bounce back after falling short against the Wizards in a 121-115 road loss on Monday. As a team, the Celtics shot 48 percent from the field and 14 of 36 from the 3-point line, but their defensive intensity just wasn't there from the start as the Clippers shot a sizzling 61 percent from the field.More news: Mosque attack hero 'saved many more lives by grabbing terrorist's gun'
In the second came the leader within Irving, scoring 12 points with seven rebounds, and eight assists on just 4-of-15 shooting. The Celtics are 35-16 ATS in their last 51 home games, 11-5 ATS in their last 16 games following a loss of more than 10 points and 2-5-1 ATS in their last eight against the Western Conference.
Jayson Tatum was back in the starting lineup after missing a game with right shoulder soreness. Meanwhile, Terry Rozier and Daniel Theis both sat out with illnesses. Despite playing on two days' rest, the Celtics were slow on switches on defence and relied on jump shots early.
The Celtics rallied to take the lead in the third period after trailing by as many as 17 points in the first half. With 13 games remaining on Boston's schedule, and with this new friendly Celtics squad, there's certainly enough time to snag a few spots up on the standings.More news: Cheltenham Festival gets the go-ahead
Kings: Outscored the Celtics 22-11 in fast-break points.
The Celtics are now 42-27 and play a rare 12:30 afternoon start game on Saturday. Through the first two quarters Irving scored 19 points, connecting 7-of-13 shots from the field with three rebounds, four assists, and a steal.
And much like in the Celtics' 25-point loss against the Clippers on Monday, Sacramento was able to rack up easy transition baskets. Hield added 10, going 4 for 4 from the field and 2 for 2 from deep.More news: Johnny Manziel signs player agreement with Alliance of American Football
