Missing both Jaylen Brown and Marcus Morris, as well as Semi Ojeleye, the Boston Celtics took care of business Wednesday night in Charlotte against the Hornets, as the Celtics put together a quality fourth quarter, winning by a final of 102-91.
The Celtics allowed a 20-point lead to dwindle to as little as two, but Jayson Tatum scored 10 of his 18 points in the final frame, enough for Boston to escape with a win.
With healthy bodies a clear issue for this team, Brad Stevens turned to his bench for help. Shane Larkin responded with 11 points on three made 3-point shots, and Terry Rozier carried over his stellar Christmas Day performance to lead the Boston bench mob with 15 himself.
The Celtics have little time to rest, as they welcome in one of the NBA’s best in the Houston Rockets Thursday night on TNT.
