SACRAMENTO, Feb. 17 (UPI) -- Paul Pierce and Rasheed Wallace had 17 points each and the Boston Celtics overcame a 37.5 percent shooting performance Tuesday to edge Sacramento 95-92.

Kevin Garnett contributed only nine points and Boston won despite allowing the Kings to rally late in the game. The Celtics led 76-69 at the start of the fourth quarter but Sacramento went on a 16-8 run to take an 85-84 lead.

Omri Casspi led the Kings with 19 points and sank a pair of free throws with 4.2 seconds to play that cut Boston's lead to one point. He had a chance to win it at the line with less than a second left but missed both shots.

Tyreke Evans added 17 points and 11 rebounds for Sacramento. Jason Thompson had 14 points and 11 rebounds.
