NBA: Boston 108, Sacramento 63

Kevin Garnett had 21 points and 11 rebounds Sunday night to lead Boston in a 108-63 rout of Sacramento and the Celtics snapped a two-game losing streak.

Garnett managed his big numbers in just 23 minutes on the floor, as the Celtics jumped out to an early lead and a cold-shooting Sacramento fell further behind as the game wore on.

Ray Allen connected on 7-of-8 shots from the field and scored 19 for Boston. Eddie House scored 15 and Paul Pierce had 13 for the Celtics.

John Salmons led the Kings with 11 points and no other Sacramento player reached double figures.

The Kings hit just six baskets in the first quarter and three in the second. They managed just 29 points in the second half -- shooting just 27.9 percent overall in their sixth straight loss.
