The Boston Celtics needed a late fourth-quarter rally before emerging 95-90 winners against the Sacramento Kings in the NBA.

The Kings had been in some form of late with decent wins in the bag but Rajon Rondo’s star turn of 17 points and 10 assists, and Ray Allen’s 22 points, condemned them to defeat.

Portland’s LaMarcus Aldridge broke his best mark with 40 points in the Trail Blazers’ 99-86 win over the San Antonio Spurs.

The Hornets shared the points around in New Orleans as they beat the visiting Washington Wizards 97-98.

Overtime was needed in Los Angeles before the Lakers stepped on it to emerge 114-106 winners against the Houston Rockets, Kobe Bryant finishing up with 32 points.
