    (SportsNetwork. Jalen Richard Jersey .com) - The Boston Celtics aim to get back in the win column when they visit the Charlotte Hornets Wednesday at Time Warner Cable Arena. The Celtics won all three games on a recent homestand and the streak came to an end with Mondays 133-132 double-overtime road setback to the Washington Wizards. Boston rallied from a 23-point deficit in the third quarter and outscored the Wizards, 34-18, in the final stanza to force overtime. Wizards guard John Wall scored the last 10 points for Washington in the second OT and handed out a career-high 17 assists to go with 26 points. Former Celtics star Paul Pierce scored 28 points. Those transition baskets killed us, both overtimes, Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. John Wall killed us in transition. Jeff Green led Boston with 28 points, rookie Marcus Smart added a career-high 23 and Kelly Olynyk finished with 19 points and 11 rebounds. Brandon Bass and Evan Turner scored 19 and 18 points, respectively, for the Celtics, who shot 46.1 percent and posted 32 points on 23 Washington turnovers. Rajon Rondo had no points and four assists in 20 minutes of action. Rondo was more of a spectator for how well Bostons reserves were playing. Those guys deserved to play at the end because they got us right back in it, Stevens said of the bench. After visiting the Hornets, the Celtics will return home to host rival New York Friday night at TD Garden. Boston is 2-5 on the road. Charlotte ended a 10-game losing streak with a 103-102 triumph over the Knicks on Friday and will close out a three-game homestand. Kemba Walkers layup with 0.3 seconds to play lifted the Hornets to their first victory since Nov. 14 at Phoenix. Knicks star Carmelo Anthony gave his team a 102-101 lead off an open 3-pointer with 40.7 seconds to play. Each team missed a jump shot and the Hornets took a timeout with four seconds to play after Marvin Williams rebounded Anthonys miss. Walker then took the inbounds pass and scurried through the lane. I just saw an open lane ... I knew I had to get to the basket in a hurry and I was able to get a shot up, Walker said. Gerald Henderson finished with a season-high 22 points on 8-of-10 shooting, Al Jefferson had 16 points and 13 rebounds, and Lance Stephenson also scored 16 points for Charlotte. The Hornets are 4-7 at The Hive and will visit the Memphis Grizzlies Friday. Charlotte and Boston will play the first of four meetings this season.

A third violation remains a lifetime ban.( - The Arizona Coyotes hope to build off their first victory in weeks when they visit the Ottawa Senators for Saturdays matinee clash at Canadian Tire Centre. The Coyotes entered Thursdays game in Toronto mired in an 0-5-2 slump, but they notched a 3-1 comeback victory for their first win since a 4-1 home triumph against Winnipeg on Jan. 8. Arizona trailed the Maple Leafs 1-0 after two periods, but Oliver Ekman- Larsson scored a short-handed goal just five seconds into the third period to kindle a rally. Ekman-Larssons goal, which tied a franchise record for quickest to open a period, came from beyond center ice after Lauri Korpikoski won the faceoff. Martin Hanzal netted the go-ahead goal 3:42 later and Sam Gagner scored on a power play later in the period as Arizona ended its seven-game slide while sending Toronto to its eighth straight loss. After the second period we thought we deserved a better fate in the game, said Coyotes Dave Tippett. We had created a lot of chances. Mike Smith had 24 saves in the win, which also stopped a five-game road losing streak for the Coyotes, who are in the midst of an eight-game trek. It was their first win away from home since Dec. 23 in Edmonton. The Coyotes, who are just 8-13-3 away from home, will visit Montreal tomorrow before completing the swing Tuesday in Columbus. Ottawa has lost three of its last four games and is coming off Thursdays 6-3 setback against former Senators captain Jason Spezza and his Dallas Stars. Thursdays game was closer than thee final score made it seem, as Ottawa rallied from down 3-0 to even the contest by the early stages of the third period. Reggie Nelson Jersey. John Klingberg snapped the tie for Dallas in the latter stages of the third period before Trevor Daley and Jamie Benn added empty-net markers to arrive at the final margin. Mika Zibanejad, Bobby Ryan and Alex Chiasson scored once each for the Senators, who have lost seven of their last 10. Robin Lehner allowed four goals on 39 shots in the setback. We werent competitive enough, we werent detailed enough, Ottawa coach Dave Cameron said. Although his team picked up a victory, Spezza failed to reach the scoresheet as he returned to Ottawa for the first time since requesting a trade from the Senators last summer. Spezza, who registered four shots on goal in 16:17 of ice time, was booed the first time he touched the puck, but the Canadian Tire Centre crowd cheered a tribute shown on the video board shortly after. With Craig Anderson on injured reserve with a bruised hand, Lehner will start again today. Lehner is 2-4-1 with a 3.28 goals against average in seven career outings against Arizona. The Sens are closing a three-game homestand this afternoon and are 10-7-4 as the host this season. Arizona and the Senators each have three wins in the last six meetings in this series, but Ottawa has claimed 11 of the past 15 encounters. The Coyotes had lost six straight -- all in regulation -- on the road in this matchup before posting an overtime win in Ottawa on Dec. 21, 2013. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
