Robert Williams stayed hot with 16 points, eight rebounds, and two steals. Evan Fournier contributed 17 points (4-for-5 from 3) and a team-high six assists.

As for how the former Celtics fared for the Hornets, Terry Rozier tallied 22 points while Brad Wanamaker added seven. Gordon Hayward didn’t play due to a foot sprain that will keep him out for four weeks.
