With the Celtics up three points and 7.6 seconds remaining, Gordon Hayward fouled Buddy Hield on a 3-pointer. Hield made all three free throws to tie the game.

Hayward got himself off the hook on the other end.

He drove for a basket, which stood as the game-winner in Boston’s 111-109 victory over the Kings on Wednesday.

This was a big win for the Celtics, who climb in the standings themselves and drop Sacramento, which owes Boston a top-one-protected first-round pick.
