The Boston Celtics looked more like wizards on Wednesday night. The magical kind, though.

Boston’s big men dazzled the Charlotte Hornets in the first two quarters with some nifty passing, highlighted by Jonas Jerebko’s terrific behind-the-back pass to David Lee for an easy bucket.

Jerebko started in the corner with a pump fake before dribbling around a defender into the paint and unleashing this sweet secret weapon.


They don’t call Jerebko the “Swedish Larry Bird” for nothing.

Jerebko’s nice pass wasn’t the first of the night for the C’s, though. Jared Sullinger had a pair of nice passes in the first quarter himself.


Five of Boston’s seven assists in the opening frame came from big men.
