NBA scores: Celtics crowned by Kings

The Boston Celtics are not playing as many fans hoped before the season started.

David Richard-US PRESSWIRE

It's been a very uneven year for the Boston Celtics, who continued to play erratically with a brutal 118-96 loss to the Sacramento Kings on Sunday.

Boston was overwhelmed, with Sacramento shooting 53.7 percent from the floor including 10-of-20 from beyond the three-point line. The Celtics' leading scorers were Jason Terry and Paul Pierce, who each had 20 points in the defeat.

Boston is now 14-16 and currently riding a three-game losing streak.

Detroit Pistons 96, Milwaukee Bucks 94: The Pistons were able to secure a win at home behind Tayshaun Prince's 20 points.

It was a tough loss for the Bucks who dropped to 16-13 on the year. Monta Ellis led all scorers with 30 points.

San Antonio Spurs 111, Dallas Mavericks 86: The Spurs continue to roll while the Mavericks have now lost six-consecutive games.

San Antonio is 24-8, largely due to Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker. In this game, the trio combined for 59 points.
