Hornets Rookies Bridges and Ball Lead Stunning OT Victory Over Celtics
Miles Bridges started the game to give an improbable win to the Charlotte Hornets as they snapped their 6-game home losing streak by defeating the Boston Celtics in an overtime victory on Monday night. LaMelo Ball scored an impressive 36 points, and Gordon Hayward contributed 20 points for the Hornets. Meanwhile, Jayson Tatum had an outstanding performance for the Celtics with 45 points, although he missed a free throw that cost them the chance to tie the game. The Celtics were leading by 11 points in the game before Charlotte made an impressive comeback and sealed the win. Despite the amazing victory, Hornets’ Coach Steve Clifford emphasized the importance of consistency and maintaining a good performance. Peyton Pritchard scored 21 points for the Celtics, but it wasn’t enough to maintain their win streak. It’s important to mention that the decision to replace P.J. Washington with Miles Bridges in the Hornets’ starting lineup was a strategic move by the team management. Moreover, Ball’s performance has been improving over the last few games, attributing it to improved health and fitness. An exciting game indeed and lots of action-filled highlights from both teams to keep fans entertained.
