Gordon Heyward tied his career-high with 39 points on 17-of-20 shooting, making all 16 of his 2-point tries plus 1-of-4 from 3-point land, as well as 4-of-4 at the free throw line.

NBA Betting Trends

Boston

The Celtics are 1-3-1 ATS in their last five road games. Boston is 3-1-1 ATS in its last five games versus the Eastern Conference.

Charlotte

The Hornets are 4-0 ATS in their last four games overall. Charlotte is 7-1 ATS in its last eight games versus the Eastern Conference.

Prediction:

This will be a revenge game for Walker and Rozier, each playing against their former team. I feel as though Rozier might play with a bigger edge considering he felt disrespected late in his time with the Celtics as he could not get consistent minutes which caused him to struggle with his rhythm. I like how the Hornets are playing right now and Boston hasn't been nearly as good on the road. I'm going to take a shot with the points at home on Charlotte.
