Note: This will be a short recap, as I'm trying to get my house ready for a New Year's Eve party tonight. Happy New Year's everyone.
The Hornets task tonight was made a bit easier with both Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo out for the Celtics, but it was still a struggle. Hornets/Celtics matchups have tended to be ugly over the past few years, and this was no exception. Slow paced, low shooting percentages, sloppy ball handling and turnovers, lots of defense and little offense. It wasn't pretty, but the back and forth nature of the game made it entertaining and it came down to a dramatic finish. Bullet points after the jump.
Alright guys, sorry for not producing a more in-depth recap, but I've got to go clean my house! I wish all Hornets fans a very happy new year. Enjoy the win.
