It wasn't pretty for most of the second half, but the Celtics managed to scrap their way back into the win column on Wednesday night in Charlotte with a 102-91 win over the Hornets.

After jumping out to a 20-point first half lead behind some sensational 3-point shooting (11-of-15 at one points), the C's saw their 20-point lead shrink to just one point by the end of the third quarter, as the team's shooting numbers fell off a cliff and the Hornets got into a rhythm.
