BOSTON (AP) - Kris Humphries came off the bench to score a season-high 18 points, adding seven rebounds for the Celtics on Friday night as Boston scored the first 14 points of the game and held on for a 106-98 victory over the Denver Nuggets.

Jordan Crawford had 22 points and eight assists, and Avery Bradley scored 18 for Boston, which won its second straight game to remain in first place in the Atlantic Division despite a 9-12 record that would rank no better than fifth in any division in the Western Conference.

Ty Lawson scored 20 points and J.J. Hickson had 17 for Denver.
