BOSTON (AP) — Jared Sullinger had 24 points and 11 rebounds, hitting a tie-breaking 3-pointer with 2:22 left on Monday night and the Boston Celtics beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 101-97.

Avery Bradley scored 19 points and first-round draft pick Kelly Olynyk had nine points in 14 minutes in his second game back after missing 10 with a sprained right ankle. The Celtics won for the fifth time in seven games to hold onto first place in the Atlantic Division despite a 12-14 record that would be 12th-best in the Western Conference.

Kevin Love had 27 points with 14 rebounds for Minnesota. But he was also 2 for 11 from 3-point range as the Timberwolves, who hit a season-high 12 3-pointers at Memphis on Sunday, went 8 of 29 from beyond the arc.
