Once again, the Boston Celtics came out victorious on the second night of an away back-to-back game, snapping the Charlotte Hornets' 4 game win streak by an 98-93 margin on Saturday night.
"We have been awfully good on the second night of back-to-backs, for whatever reason, on the road," said head coach Brad Stevens. "So we have a lot of confidence that we are going to, if we struggle early, we will find that second wind. We're not going to make any excuses."
Avery Bradley was Boston's leading scorer with 23 points, but Isaiah Thomas was not far behind, chipping in 21 to go along with a career high 13 assists. Evan Turner and David Lee both scored in double figures off the bench with 10 points each, and Amir Johnson had 3 blocks as well as a pretty good video bomb of Kyle Draper.
