Tatum scores 41 points as Celtics beat Hornets 140-129 in OT

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Jayson Tatum scored a season-high 41 points, Jaylen Brown added 30, including an emphatic dunk in overtime, and the Boston Celtics beat Charlotte 140-129 on Monday night, handing the Hornets their first loss of the season.

Dennis Schroder had nine of his 23 points in overtime, and Robert Williams added 12 points and 16 rebounds in a game that featured 28 lead changes.

"It just showed that we have some fight in us, some toughness," Tatum said of the Celtics, who battled back from 12 points down in the fourth quarter. "Whatever was going our way, wasn't going our way, we had to figure it out."
