Celtics rally from big deficit to beat Hornets 106-98

BOSTON (AP) The ever-changing Boston Celtics have found a second unit that comes with a lot of offensive firepower.

Newcomers Isaiah Thomas and Jonas Jerebko and relative newcomer Jae Crowder combined for more than half of the Celtics' points and led a 16-point comeback in Boston's 106-98 victory over the Charlotte Hornets on Friday night.

Led by Thomas, who scored 21 of his 28 points in the second half, the Celtics battled back to tie the game at 80 on his 3-pointer and reclaimed the lead for good at 89-88 on Jerebko's layup at the 5:28 mark.
