Derrick White scored 15 points and added 6 assists. Luke Kornet chipped in with 9 points, 8 rebounds, and one hilarious wing-flapping celebration that Griffin dubbed “the Cornish game hen” even though it’s apparently a “Napoleon Dynamite” homage. So many Celtics contributed Monday that I’m pretty sure the box score said that Jason Stone, Injury Lawyer, chipped in with 9 points and 4 assists.
Stromile Swift appreciates Luke Kornet using his trademark celebration and told our Chris Forsberg that the Celtics have a special team capable of getting back to the NBA Finals.
The Boston Celtics can stretch their home winning streak to 10 games when they meet the Miami Heat on Wednesday night. Despite being without injured guard Jaylen Brown (neck stiffness) and center Al Horford (back), the Celtics turned in what may have been their best offensive performance of the season when they beat the depleted Charlotte Hornets 140-105 on Monday night. Charlotte was missing five players because of injuries.
