Celtics fall to Hornets in a crushing defeat marked by poor performance. Despite excuses, Celtics failed to close the game, with Luke Kornet’s high plus/minus not enough to save them. The team’s subpar three-point shooting, turnovers, and decision-making led to their worst loss of the season. The loss is particularly disappointing given their solid season start and top player Jayson Tatum’s 45-point performance. The Celtics now find themselves in need of improvements and better game-closing skills to meet expectations.
