Celtics top Raptors 88-83, end 9-game skid

Posted: Updated:
Jared Sullinger scored 25 points and grabbed a career-best 20 rebounds, Avery Bradley had 20 points and the Boston Celtics held on to snap a nine-game losing streak with an 88-83 victory over the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night.

Jeff Green scored 13 points and Kris Humphries 12 as the Celtics nearly blew an 18-point, second-half lead.

Sullinger's 20-20 was the first by a Celtics player since Kevin Garnett's first game in Boston in 2007. Garnett was dealt -- along with Paul Pierce -- to Brooklyn during the offseason.

DeMar DeRozan scored 23 points and Kyle Lowry had 18 with 12 assists for Toronto, which lost for just the third time in 11 games.

Boston missed 13 of its first 15 shots in the opening eight minutes of the fourth. Toronto had the deficit down to 81-78, but DeRozan lost the ball on a drive with about 40 seconds left.
