According to the team, Horford's first symptoms linking him to a possible concussion occurred on Wednesday morning. Baynes has already been a welcome and somewhat surprising addition to the Celtics' lineup early on this year, and Wednesday he delivered his best performance of the young season.

BOSTON – Dont look now, but after stumbling to an 0-2 start, the Boston Celtics have won 10 straight. Charlotte has now tallied just one SU and ATS win in its last nine away contests, allowing 105.8 points per game during that stretch, and has enjoyed little success in recent dates with the Celtics, going 1-8 SU and ATS in their past nine overall meetings.

Kyrie Irving showcased his dribbling skills against the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night, navigating around all five defenders on one play. Danny Ainge said the team will continue to take a cautious approach with Horford. Stephen Curry had 22 points, eight assists and eight rebounds to help Golden State win easily without the injured Kevin Durant.

After the Celtics remained the hottest NBA team with a 107-96 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers for their 10th consecutive win, Ball said he still has yet to talk to LiAngelo or his family, as both of his parents and his youngest brother, LaMelo, are in China, where LiAngelo's UCLA squad is preparing for Friday's matchup with Georgia Tech. They do not have to be stuck in one particular spot to have their impact.

With Al Horford finding himself in the concussion protocol once again (he missed an extended period of time last season with the same issue), the Celtics needed their other big men to step up. Jayson Tatum has had a phenomenal two way impact in every single game.

The goal is keep the momentum to start looking like a team with realistic designs on the Eastern Conference title. "That's what (coach) Luke (Walton) and Magic (Johnson) have been telling me", Ball said. "Of course he's a rookie so he's going to make mistakes". But a 3 by Beal soon built the hosts' advantage back to 15. He also made only three of 12 shots and was one for seven on three-pointers. The Celtics had almost no support for Horford last season, and this year every player they put in there has been making a difference.

NEW YORK (AP) - The NBA has fined Oklahoma Thunder head coach Billy Donovan, forward Paul George and guard Russell Westbrook $15,000 apiece for publicly criticizing game officials following Sunday's loss to Portland. He finished the possession with a layup, giving the Celtics an 18-11 lead. So it's no surprise he is doing as well as he is. Wizards: Centers Marcin Gortat and Ian Mahinmi combined for 10 points and 11 personal fouls in 44 minutes.

This game doesn't pop off the page as a must-see game, but that's just the style of play for the Memphis Grizzlies this season.
