Boston Pulls Away Late In Overtime Thriller Against The Hornets (140-129)

One of the biggest storylines early on this season has been the rise of the Charlotte Hornets, who knocked off the Nets on Sunday to start 3-0 for the first time in franchise history. Unfortunately for Charlotte, their hot start came to an end last night at the hands of the Boston Celtics.

 

How The Game Was Won

 

In a back and forth affair all night long, LaMelo Ball hit a three to put the Hornets up two with 1:09 left. Jayson Tatum then followed that up with a pair of clutch free throws to tie the game up which led to overtime. After falling down by three early in OT, Boston ended the game on a 14-0 run to come out victorious in Charlotte, highlighted by this incredible poster dunk by Jaylen Brown.

 

Boston’s Budding Stars

 

Jayson Tatum went for 41 points in last night’s victory while Jaylen Brown poured in 30 himself. They’re currently averaging a combined 55.8 points per game, as both are putting up career high scoring numbers (27.5 PPG for Tatum, 28.3 PPG for Brown). While they both made the All-Star game last year, it looks like they may be knocking on the door of superstardom if they continue their stellar play.
