Jayson Tatum scored game-high 22 points while 6 more players from Boston's squad were in double figures and led the Celtics to a 116-82 win over depleted Charlotte Hornets on Sunday. Jaylen Brown and Evan Fournier had 17 points each as the team made a comeback after being nine points down. Tatum then powered the team to a big 40-point third quarter.
Terry Rozier also had the same points as Tatum but did not have the team's support as they were without Gordon Hayward who was sidelined due to a foot injury and LaMelo Ball was sidelined due to a wrist injury. Celtics found themselves on the better half of .500 after claiming their second straight win.
