Al Horford scores 26 to lead Celtics over Kings 97-92

BOSTON (AP) - A runaway start for the Boston Celtics turned into a tight finish.

Al Horford led the Celtics early and late, with 26 points, eight rebounds and six blocked shots to lead Boston to a 97-92 win over the Sacramento Kings on Friday night.

"He just was aggressive. He knocked down his shots. He did what we needed him to do and he carried us tonight," said Isaiah Thomas, who scored 14 of his 20 points in the second half to help the Celtics hold off the Kings.
