PHOENIX -- Eric Bledsoe had 28 points and rookie Tyler Ulis had a career-high 20 points, including a 3-pointer as time expired, in the Phoenix Suns' 109-106 victory over the Boston Celtics on Sunday.

Isaiah Thomas had 35 points and five 3-pointers and Jae Crowder had 16 points and 10 rebounds for the Celtics, who had a two-game winning streak broken.

Devin Booker had 16 points, TJ Warren had 14 and rookie Marquese Chriss had 10 points and a season-high five locked shots for the Suns.

Utah Jazz 110, Sacramento Kings 109 (OT)

SACRAMENTO, Calif. --- Rudy Gobert finished with 24 rebounds, the last one a tip on a missed shot as time expired in overtime, and Utah stunned Sacramento.

Willie Cauley-Stein made two free throws with 8.9 seconds left to put the Kings ahead 109-108. After a timeout, George Hill tried to score on a dribble drive into the lane. Hill's floater came up short, but Gobert reached up just outside the basket cylinder and tipped it in. Referees originally ruled the tip came after the final buzzer but reversed the decision after a replay review.

Gobert finished with 16 points and Rodney Hood had a team-high 28 points in his first game back after a two-game absence for Utah. Gordon Hayward added 23. Ty Lawson scored 19 points to pace the Kings, who lost their fourth consecutive game.

Washington Wizards 115, Orlando Magic 114

Terrence Ross scored 20 points and Evan Fournier had 18 points for the Magic.

Golden State Warriors 112, New York Knicks 105

Derrick Rose led the Knicks with 28 points, and Kristaps Porzingis contributed 24 points and 15 rebounds.

New Orleans Pelicans 105, Los Angeles Lakers 97

LOS ANGELES -- Anthony Davis had 31 points and nine rebounds as New Orleans defeated Los Angeles at Staples Center.

DeMarcus Cousins finished with 26 points and 15 rebounds before fouling out with 1:55 left. He experienced his first win in five tries with the Pelicans since being obtained from Sacramento on Feb. 20. Jrue Holiday had 20 points, 12 rebounds and five assists for New Orleans.

Nick Young scored 19 points for the Lakers, who lost their seventh in a row.

Indiana Pacers 97, Atlanta Hawks 96

ATLANTA -- Glenn Robinson III made a 3-pointer with 0.6 seconds left to help Indiana overcome a six-point deficit with less than two minutes to play and stun Atlanta.

The Pacers were led by Paul George, who scored 34 points, his 11th game of 30 or more this season. George was 6-for-9 on 3-pointers. Indiana also got 16 points, four rebounds and six assists from Jeff Teague and 13 points from C.J. Miles.

The Hawks were led in scoring by Tim Hardaway Jr., who had four 3-pointers and scored 24, and Paul Millsap, who had 23 points and 10 rebounds. Dennis Schroder scored 18 and had seven assists.

Dallas Mavericks 104, Oklahoma City Thunder 89

DALLAS -- Seth Curry scored 22 points to lead hot-shooting Dallas past Oklahoma City.

The Mavericks won for the fourth time in five games to climb with in two games of a playoff position. Dirk Nowitzki started strong and finished with 18 points and 12 rebounds for his fifth double-double this season. Harrison Barnes added 17 points.

Russell Westbrook, the NBA's leading scorer, seemed to be thoroughly frustrated by the Mavs, especially by the physical defense of Wesley Matthews. Westbrook scored 29 points, 14 coming in the first period, but shot only 8 of 24 to go along with six rebounds and five assists. Westbrook also picked up his 14th technical foul on the season and a flagrant-1 foul for shoving Barnes in the third quarter.
