Charlotte Hornets will meet Boston Celtics on Wedesday in Charlotte, this will be the fourth game between both teams this season. Boston have won 2 of those 3 game by an average of 8.5 points and the Hornets won the other game by 9 points.

Boston Celtics are having their best basketball this season with only 2 loses in the last 10 games, Boston are coming off a great win vs Brooklyn Nets 126-120 in a game that Jayson Tatum had 54 points! Boston Celtics are the No.1 in Power ranking now and are considered one of the favourites to win the championship if they continue to play this good come the playoffs time.

Charlotte Hornets are coming off a tough loss at home to Brooklyn Nets 132-121 in a game that Kyrie Irving had 50 points on 79% shoot percentage! Charlotte haven't really been good lately especially on the defensive end as they are ranked 28th of points allowed this season in the NBA and you can't play a defence like that if you want to go to the playoffs, they are currently standing as the 9th seed after the loss to Brooklyn Nets and will only go down if they keep playing no defence at all which is a thing you can't do against Boston.

Boston Celtics are 14-2 straight up last 16 games this season, Boston are also 16-4 straight up last 20 vs the Hornets and 14-5-1 ATS in those games, the total has gone over last 5 road games for the Celtics and aslo the total has gone over in 6 of last 7 games for the Celtics vs an opponent from the Eastern Conference.

Boston have beaten them already twice this season and Hornets have beaten Boston Once thos season by points. the O/U is 5-5 last 10 games with Boston averaging 114.8 points and Charlotte averaging 106.8 points a game.


Boston Celtics are the better team, the more rested team and the team that have the momentum to come here and win this season. Jayson Tatum have been on fire lately scoring 54 vs the Nets, 37 vs the Grizzlies and scoring 22 vs the Hawks in last 3 games and i like him to continue this form vs the terrible defence of Charlotte here especially that the Hornets are playing on a back to back too.
