Tatum puts up 44 points to lead Celtics to 115-101 win over Hornets

Jayson Tatum followed up his 54 point eruption on the Nets Sunday with a not too shabby 44 points tonight in Charlotte. Six Celtics scored in double digits in the 115 to 101 win.

There was a point this season where it looked like the Celtics might not even hit 40 wins on the season, but with a month to go they have hot that threshold. Their record now stands at 40-27 as Boston continues to climb the Eastern Conference standings.
