Jayson Tatum opened eyes as a dunker last season, throwing down monster slams despite only being a teenager. But what he did on Wednesday night in a blowout victory over the Hornets might top them all. After missing a 3 and watching the long rebound carom out to Terry Rozier, Tatum dove baseline...

The Celtics continue to lean on Kyrie Irving at the end of games. But it's a formula that isn't always going to translate into wins, as was evident in Boston's 117-112 loss to the Hornets Monday night. (For a complete recap, click here.) Sure, it was Irving's 23 points in the fourth quarter and...

This wasn't really a test. And the Celtics couldn't have left Charlotte feeling like all their uneasiness is in the rearview mirror. But the Celts' 102-91 win over the lowly Hornets was better than nothing, and at least returned some confidence back to Brad Stevens' club before it gets a real...

Isaiah Thomas once again reminded us what time it is, but after watching the Celtics beat the Hornets on Monday night, I'm fascinated by Jaylen Brown. The rookie didn't do much down the stretch of the 108-98 victory -- he was at least on the floor for much of the fourth quarter when Thomas...
