After dropping the first two games of the season, Coach Ime Udoka’s Boston Celtics, cruise to back to back wins in two days, after enjoying an entertaining 140-129 win over Charlotte Hornets this morning.

In the middle of the win, Jaylen Brown pulled up a poster dunk for a team who had it smooth offensively but will have to fix some defensive buffoneries as time goes on. Despite that, their defensive resiliency down the stretch was the key in pulling out a double-digit, fourth-quarter comeback victory.

Jayson Tatum scored a season-high 41 points, Jaylen Brown added 30 for the Celtics.

Miles Bridges had 25 points and 10 rebounds and LaMelo Ball added 25 points on seven 3-pointers for the Hornets before fouling out in overtime. Kelly Oubre added 19 points for Charlotte (3-1), which was denied its first 4-0 start in franchise history.

Both teams had a chance to win the game at the end of regulation but had difficulty inbounding the ball resulting in neither team getting a shot off in the game’s final 15 seconds.

Charlotte fell behind by four in overtime before Ball canned a long 3 to give the Hornets with 3:25 left and then knocked down two free throws to push the lead to 3.
